If You Go Away

This song is by Patricia Kaas and appears on the album Piano Bar (2002).

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'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 the sun
We'll ride on the rain
We'll talk to the trees
We'll worship the wind
And 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
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
I've been the shadow
Of your shadow I fell
You might have kept me
By your side

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
And if you go
I'll understand
Leave me just enough love
To hold in my hand

If you go away
If you go away
Ne me quitte pas
