If You Go (Ne Me Quitte Pas) (Lesley Garrett)

Don’t leave me We must forget Everything can be forgotten Which is already past Forget the times Of misunderstandings And the lost time To know how To forget those moments Which sometimes killed - with constant ‘whys’ – The heart of happiness Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me I will give you Pearls of rain Which have come from countries Where it doesn’t rain I will keep digging the earth Until after my death To cover your body With gold and light I will make a domain Where love will be king Where love will be law Where love will be queen Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me I will invent for you Crazy words That you will understand I will talk to you Of those lovers Who have twice seen Their hearts set ablaze I will tell you The story of the king Dead from not having Been able to meet you Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me We have often seen Spurt forth The fire of an ancient volcano That one thought too old It appears that Burnt earth Gives more wheat Than the best April And when the evening comes So that the sky blazes Red and black Don’t they become one? Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me I’m not going to cry any more I’m not going to talk any more I will hide there Watching you Dance and smile Listening to you Sing and then laugh Let me become The shadow of your shadow The shadow of your hand The dog at your command Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me Don’t leave me
