If I Lost You Now - Nerina Pallot

If I lost you now, would I cry,
And hang my head forlorn and sad?
Would I greet each day in silence
And wipe each dear, each hopeless hope
Wordlessly away until I slip into shadow?
If I lost you now, would I be sorry?
Would I slowly stumble on somehow?
Would I hide my eyes from this lonely life
If I lost you now?

Would the world go on regardless
And foreign runes in time pursued?

Love is his name and ever shall be
How could they know what I let go?
I'd beg the bitter end of days to swallow me whole.

If I lost you now, would I be sorry?
Would I slowly stumble on somehow?
Would I hide my eyes from this lonely life
If I lost you now?
If I lost you now?

If I lost you now, would I cry?
Oh my god, would I.
