What Will I Do When You Go Away
What will I do when you go away? (2013)

Life like a river flows to the sea
From mountains and valleys to destiny
But each grain of sand the sea takes away
Is a day that's gone

Like a candle shining bright
Love lights up the darkest night
But each moment more the candle burns
Is a night that's gone

Springtime turns to summer
Then autumn comes along
But once the leaves have fallen
Winter sings his lonely song

What will I do when you go away?
Will I stay alone and cry?
Will I search the whole wide world for you?
The ocean and the sky

Will you call my name out loud?
Will I see you in the clouds?
Will you ever come and visit me here?
Or will you just disappear?

Love like a beautiful dance depends
How the song goes when the music ends
When the night is old and the dancer goes home
All alone

Love is the story hidden away
The book we wrote about our yesterdays
Now the pages are turned and tomorrow is gone
It's all gone

Once I had a dream
You and I would live forever
In my dream I saw
Our hearts and our souls together

But dreams are just the fantasies
We tell ourselves like fairy tales
With happy endings every one
Oh no - oh no, please don't go

What will I do when you go away?
I will stay alone and cry
I will search the whole wide world for you
The ocean and the sky

I will see you in the clouds
And you'll call my name out loud
I will wait forever to hold you here
And you never will disappear, no, no, no, no, no
Our love will never disappear
