If you go away

by Frank Sinatra

Lyrics

This English song uses the simple past and the simple future using 'will':-

 

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 on 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 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
'Til 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 slowly
'Til the 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.
We'll sail on you smile
We'll ride on your touch
I'll talk to your eyes
That I love so much,
But if you go
I won't cry
For the good is gone
From the word "goodbye"

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.
I' d have been the shadow of your darkened night
If I thought It might have kept me by your side.

If you go away
If you go away
If you go away
