If You Go Away (Live (At The Royal Festival Hall))

If You Go Away (Live (At The Royal Festival Hall))

Glen Campbell

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 nights were 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'll stay I'll make you a day like no day has been or will be again
We'll sail the sun we'll glide 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 fill up 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 slow to the next hello
If you go away if you go away if you go away
If you go away as I know you might 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 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
But if you'll stay I'll make you a night like no night has been or will be again

I'll sail on your smile I'll glide on your touch I'll talk to your eyes that I love so much
But if you go I know I will cry and all the good is gone from the words goodbye
If you go away if you go away if you go away please don't go away
