The Seekers

The Seekers
If You Go Away (Ne Me Quitte Pas)

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 and the night was long
And the moon stood still for the night bird 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
And worship the wind
But 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

If you go away 'cause I know you will
You must tell the world to stop turning until
You return again if you ever do
For what good is now without loving you
Can I tell you now as you turn to go
I'll be dying slowly 'til your next hello
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away

But if you stay
I'll make you a night
Like no night has been
Or will be again
I'll sail on you smile
I'll ride on your touch
I'll talk to your eyes
That i love so much
But if you go, go
I won't cry
For the good has gone from the word 'goodbye'
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away, if you go away

If you go away 'cause I know you must
There'll be nothing left in the world to trust
Just an empty room full of empty space
Like the empty look I see on your face
I'd have been the shadow of your shadow
If I thought it might have kept me by your side
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away

Please, don't go away
