If You Were Gone – Lyrics – Alexander Rybak

“If You Were Gone” – Alexander Rybak

From “Fairytales” album, released in 2009.

Music and original Norwegian lyrics by Hennig Sommero
English lyrics by Alexander Rybak

If you were gone the moon would lose it’s brightness
Without your smile the finch would sing no more
And once in a while some waves would sigh with sadness
Remembering to lovers walking by the shore

If you were gone the days would all be pointless
And in the night I’d sing the song so blue
A song about spring and every happy moment
When I had all the time along with you

But you are here and nothing could be better
So take my hand and stay with me till dawn
And while the wind is playing with your sweater
I can’t imagine life if you were gone…

But you are here and nothing could be better
So take my hand and stay with me till dawn
And while the wind is playing with your sweater
I can’t imagine life if you were gone…

If you were gone the world would lose it’s meaning
Without your love how could I smile again
And though the sun would always keep on shining
I’d never shine without my dearest friend

But you are here and nothing could be better
So take my hand and stay with me till dawn
And while the wind is playing with your sweater
I can’t imagine life if you were gone…

  1. You’d better listen the song again.In the first stanza,in the second line,it’s not ”will”,it’s ”would”.Then,in the third line it’s ”sigh” instead of ”said”.In the last line of the first stanza,instead of ”remember” it’s ”remembering”.In the second stanza,second line:it’s not ”I’ll”,it’s ”I’d”.Third stanza,second line:”dawn” instead of ”dark”.Third line:instead of ”will” it’s ”while”.Same thing in the last stanza.Please,pay a bit more attention.My intention is not to criticise you,I’m just correcting some mistakes 😉

    1. Thank you. Soory that this hasn’t been taken care of before now. Everything you have pointed out has now been corrected 🙂

  2. I think I’m going to sing this on my ‘Concert Van Je Leven'(Concert Of Your Life) of school, which is my exam for Music.
    And I think I’ll sing it while thinking of my dearest friend Fano. <3
