If you go away on this summer's 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 nightbird's 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 on the sun, we'll ride on the rain,
We'll talk to the trees, and worship the wind.
Then if you go, I'll understand,
Leave me just enough love to hold in my hand.
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away

If you go away as I know you will
You must tell the world to stop turning till
You return again if you ever do
For what good is love without loving you?
Can I tell you now, as you turn to go
I'll be dying slow, till our 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 your smile, I'll ride on your touch,
I'll talk to your eyes that I love so much.
But if you go, no, I won't cry,
Though the good is gone from the word "goodbye"
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away.
Please don't go away!
