If You Go Away

This song is an English adaptation of the French song “Ne Me Quitte Pas” by Jacques Brel. The Brel version was one of Mick’s favorite songs and was probably recorded by Peter as a farewell to Mick. Peter has since performed the song live only a small handful of times. Special thanks to Penelope with Team Mick Karn for this beautiful tribute video to Dalis Car and Mick Karn.

If you go away on this summer’s 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
And 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
