If you go away, as I know you must, I’ll understand.
But if you stay, I’ll make you a day
Like no day has been or will be again.
Then if you go, I’ll understand.
If you go away, as I know you must
There’ll be nothing left in this world to trust
Just an empty room, full of empty space
Like the empty look I see on your face.
But if you go, I won’t cry
The good’s gone from goodbye.
Can I tell you now, as you turn to go
I’ll be dying slowly till your next hello.
Now that you’ve gone, I understand.
