Omd – If You Leave lyrics

If you leave, don't leave now
Please don't take my heart away
Promise me just one more night
Then we'll go our separate ways
With hours left time on our sides
Now it's fading fast
Every second every moment
We've got to--we've gotta make it last

I touch you once I touch you twice
I won't let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd still be friends someday

If you leave I won't cry
I won't waste one single day
But if you leave don't look back
I'll be running the other way
Seven years went under the bridge
Like time was standing still
Heaven knows what happens now
You've got to--you've gotta say you will

I touch you once I touch you twice
I won't let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd meet again

I touch you once I touch you twice
I won't let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd still be friends

I touch you once I touch you twice
I won't let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd meet again someday

If you leave
Oh if you leave
Oh if you leave
Don't look back
Don't look back

    The q and the other stations I heard the request these eyes and promises from you and the other songs etc. Theres no reason to feel that way now, I could blame you too and have, you have brought happiness to me when I was lonely for these years, I know I ranaway alot, I want you to be happy in your world, for right now I'm not in love with anyone in my world or outside of my world and I don't know why I stay here somrtimes, I just need you to understand and part of me doesn't want you to leave but a part of me wants to leave.

    Some people go threw there whole life staying married to the same person even if there unhappy but I know marriage isn't perfect and it takes work, sometimes I think I was just meant to stay in a father daughter marriage, part of me is afraid to leave and marry someone else because I'm afraid they might be alchoholics, druggies or have been with to many girls and that's not safe, I know your not an alchoholic or druggie etc.

    I heard all the songs this evening for me from you on the q, all songs from pretty in pink, private eyes, bad to the bone and the others etc. We both took chances and changed each others way of life, we both have misread meanings, you don't understand sometimes, some times I want you give up, when I thought you have you reach out again, theres alot of things that I've known or know and understand, and maybe some of the confusion could be that because I don't write it down and keep it to myself could be why you think that way about some things, and yes I know the music can't always be our voice, your stronger and you can handle being in a spotlight where I want to run from it and ill never change I've always been that way since I was a little girl, I ran off the stage when I was in a play in the 2nd grade and I would run off now too in that same situation.

    I'm not in love with my father figure because we have father daughter relationship, even though he has strong german believes he has a kind heart for animals etc. And another reason why I think me and you can talk to each other is because weve known each other for along time and worked around each other at work together, at work you used to let me come and go and you were always a gentlemen and we had lots of fun, I don't know how people can talk to a complete stranger that they met on facebook.
