Tom Jones – If I Ever Had To Say Good Bye lyrics

If I ever had to say
Good bye to you
Let the world come to an end
It wouldn't matter to me then
I wouldn't want to live
With just your memory
Deep inside myself
I never would be free
This life would hold no
Happiness for me

I could never say hello
To someone new
If I looked into her eyes
I'd be ashamed and I
Despise myself for trying
To recapture what was gone
Just an imitation dream
To wish upon
I'd only hurt her
And that kind of love
Is wrong

If I ever had to say good bye to you
I can't imagine where I go
Or what I'll do
There is no way I could face
The world alone
I'd be a puppy dog scared
And lost without a home

So please stay with me
Until our time is through
Let me look into your heart
And know that we can
Never part and I will
Always try to make you
Happy too
And the tears I shed
Are for a love that's true

You make me laugh,
You make me cry
You make me want to live or die
Just let me look into
Your heart
I know that we can never part
Then I'll never have to say
Good bye to you
