[Verse 1]
              Em
If you go a - way ...on this summer day,
          Am
Then you might as well take the sun away,
          D7
All the birds that flew ...in the summer sky,
      G
When our love was new, and our hearts were high,
         Am/C                    B7
When the day was young, and the night was long,
         Em *                         Em7/D
And the moon stood still ...for the nightbird's song,
       Am/C            B7                 Em
If you go away, if you go away, ...if you go away!


[Verse 2]
                Em *      Em7/D     Em6/C#
But, ...if you stay, I'll make you a day...
                 B7                   Em
Like no day has been, or will be a - gain,
       B7         Em *      Em7/D       Em6/C#
We'll sail on the sun, we'll ride on the rain,
                   D7                     G
We'll talk to the trees, and worship the wind,
 B7          Em                F6
Then, if you go, I'll under - stand,
              F#m7b5          B7         Em
Leave me just enough love to hold in my hand,
               G                  Am
If you go a - way, if you go a - way,
               B7   B7sus4  B7
If you go a - way!


[Verse 3]
             Em
Ne me quitte pas, il faut oublier,
           Am
Tout peut s'oblier, qui s'enfuit déjà,
        D7
Oubli - er le temps ...des malentendus,
        G
Et le temp perdu, a savoir comment,
       Am/C                         B7
Oubli - er ces heures ...qui tuai - ent parfois,
   Em *                   Em7/D
A coups de pourquoi ...le couer du Bonheur,
       Am/C               B7
Ne me quitte pas, ne me quitte pas,
             Em     A/C#  Em
Ne me quitte pas!


[Verse 4]
                Em *      Em7/D      Em6/C#
But, ...if you stay, I'll make you a night,
                  B7                    Em
Like no night has been, or will be a - gain,
      B7           Em *       Em7/D        Em6/C#
I'll sail on your smile, I'll ride on your touch,
                   D7               G
I'll talk to your eyes, that I love so much,
 B7          Em                 F6
Then, if you go, I'll under - stand,
              F#m7b5          B7         Em
Leave me just enough love to hold in my hand,
               G                 Am
If you go a - way, if you go a - way,
                B7    B7sus4  B7
If you  go a - way!


[Verse 5]
       Em
If you go away, as I know you must,
              Am
There'll be nothing left in this world to trust,
          D7
Just an empty room, full of empty space,
           G
Like the empty look ...I see on your face,
Am/C                          B7
      Oh, I'd have been the shadow of your shadow,
Em *                          Em7/D
      If it might have kept me by your side,
         Am/C             B7                     Em
...If you go away, if you go away, if you go a - way!

Please, don't go away!
