Take away the dawn.
I don’t need the dawn,
I’ve got you to start the day.

Take away the sun,
I don’t need the sun,
I’ve got you to light the way.

What would I do?
Where would I go?
Who would I be if you left me?
Don’t, don’t ever go.
My heart would take no time to break,
If one day I should find you gone.

Take your love from me,
Very soon there’d be,
Nothing left what dreaming of,
So take away the night and day.
The birds that sing,
Take anything,
But don’t, don’t take away your love.
