"If You Go Away" as written by and Jacques Roman/brel Brel....
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
And the day was young
And the night was long
And the moon stood still
For the night bird's song

If you go away
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
Will talk to the trees
And 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
If you go away

As 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
And I'd have been the shadow of your dawn

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
