Lyrics I, CAPRICORN
CHILD OF MORNING
CLIMBER OF RAINBOWS,
RIDER OF CLOUDS.
AND I HAVE SUMMER DAYS
TO SQUANDER,
SEVEN LIVES TO LIVE,
ALL THE FIRES OF WINTER,
ALL MY LOVE TO GIVE.
I, CAPRICORN
BORN OF THE SUNRISE
KEEPER OF SEASHELLS,
REAPER OF WIND.
AND I HAVE HAPPINESS
TO SCATTER,
DREAMS FOR COMING TRUE.
LOVE TO LAST FOR ALWAYS,
AND IT'S ALL FOR YOU.
ALL FOR YOU.
ALL FOR YOU.
ALL FOR YOU.
ALL FOR YOU.
ALL FOR YOU.
I, CAPRICORN
WORKER OF WONDERS
MOVER OF MOUNTAINS,
LOVER OF YOU.

I, CAPRICORN
BORN OF THE SUNSHINE
CLIMBER OF RAINBOWS,
RIDER OF CLOUDS.
AND I HAVE BUTTERFLIES
TO SQUANDER,
MILKY WAYS TO GIVE,
ALL THE FIRES OF WINTER,
SEVEN LIVES TO LIVE.
I, CAPRICORN
CHILD OF THE MORNING
STRINGER OF STARBEADS,
REAPER OF WIND.
AND I HAVE POPPYSEEDS
TO SCATTER,
LIME AND HONEYDEW,
BAGS OF TURQUOISE CANDY,
AND IT'S ALL FOR YOU.
ALL FOR YOU.
ALL FOR YOU.
ONLY YOU,
ONLY YOU,
ALL FOR YOU.
I, CAPRICORN
KEEPER OF SEASHELLS
SPINNER OF MOONLACE,
LOVER OF YOU.

Lyrics IF YOU GO AWAY
ON THIS SUMMER 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;
WHEN THE DAY WAS YOUNG
AND THE NIGHT WAS LONG,
AND THE MOON STOOD STILL
FOR THE NIGHTBIRD'S SONG.
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY.

BUT IF YOU STAY,
I'LL MAKE YOU A DAY,
LIKE NO DAY HAS BEEN,
OR WILL BE AGAIN;
WE'LL SAIL THE SUN,
WE'LL RIDE THE RAIN,
WE'LL TALK TO THE TREES
AND WORSHIP THE WIND.
THEN IF YOU GO,
I'LL UNDERSTAND,
LEAVE ME
JUST ENOUGH LOVE
TO FILL UP MY HAND.
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY.

IF YOU GO AWAY,
AS I KNOW YOU WILL,
YOU MUST TELL
THE WORLD
TO STOP TURNING TILL
YOU RETURN AGAIN,
IF YOU EVER DO,
FOR WHAT GOOD IS LOVE
WITHOUT LOVING YOU;
CAN I TELL YOU NOW,
AS YOU TURN TO GO,
I'LL BE DYING SLOWLY
TILL THE NEXT HELLO.
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY.

BUT IF YOU STAY,
I'LL MAKE YOU
A NIGHT,
LIKE NO NIGHT
HAS BEEN,
OR WILL BE AGAIN;
I'LL SAIL
ON YOUR SMILE,
I'LL RIDE
ON YOUR TOUCH,
I'LL TALK
TO YOUR EYES,
THAT I LOVE
SO MUCH.
BUT IF YOU GO,
GO, I WON'T CRY,
THOUGH THE GOOD
IS GONE
FROM THE WORD
GOODBYE.
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY.

IF YOU GO AWAY,
AS I KNOW YOU MUST,
THERE'LL BE
NOTHING LEFT
IN THE WORLD
TO TRUST;
JUST AN EMPTY ROOM,
FULL OF EMPTY SPACE,
LIKE THE EMPTY LOOK
I SEE ON YOUR FACE,
I'D HAVE BEEN
THE SHADOW
OF YOUR SHADOW
IF I THOUGHT
IT MIGHT HAVE
KEPT ME
BY YOUR SIDE.
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY,
IF YOU GO AWAY,
PLEASE DON'T GO AWAY.
