Juli Rod McKuen – If You Go Away Liedtext

If you go away

On this summer day

Then you might as well

Take the sun away

All the birds that flew

In the summer sky

When our love was new

And our hearts were high

When the day was young

When the night was long

And the moon stood still

For the nightbird song

If you go away

If you go away

If you go away

But if you stay

I’ll make you a day

Like no day has been

Or will be again

We’ll sail the sun

We’ll ride on the rain

We’ll talk to the trees

We’ll worship the wind

Then if you go

I’ll understand

Leave me just enough love

To fill up my hand

If you go away

If you go away

If you go away

If you go away

As I know you must

There’ll be nothing left

In this world to trust

Just an empty room

Full of empty space

Like the empty look

I see on your face

If you go away

If you go away

Please

Don’t go away
