DON'T LEAVE ME(Ne Me Quitte Pas)
Jacques Brel, engl. Lyrics Black Veils

Don't leave me
Just forget it all
We can forget it all
It's all gone now, see
Just forget the times
Our desires crossed
And the time we lost
Thinking how we might
Forget those hours
That would crucify
On a cross of „Why?"
That joy of ours
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me

I will offer you
Pearls made of rain
That comes from a land
Where rain never falls
I'll dig in the dirt
Even after I've gone
Just to cover your long
Form in gold and light
I'll make you a land
Where the king will be love
Where the law will be love
And where you will be queen

Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me

Don't leave me
I'll invent for you
The words of a fool
As plain as can be
And I'll tell you then
About those lovers who
Twice saw their two
Hearts melt into one
Then I'll retell the one
About the king who died
Because he was denied
The light of your sun
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me

It's often been seen
A volcano explode
When it was believed
To be far too old
And then it appears
In some burned-out fields
That the wheat grows in yields
Like the greatest of years
And when the night comes back
For the sky to burn true
Will the red and the black
Stay apart and as two
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me

Don't leave me
I won't cry anymore
I won't talk anymore
I'll just hiding here
Just to look at you
As you dance and smile
And listen to you
Sing and then laugh
Let me turn into
The shadow of your shadow
The shadow of your hand
The shadow of your dog
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
