If You Forget Me Lyrics - Madonna

Review The Song (1)

I want you to know one thing
You know how this is

If I look at the crystal moon
At the red branch of the slow autumn at my window
If I touch near the fire the impalpable ash
Or the wrinkled body of the log
Everything carries me to you
As if everything that exists - aromas, light, metals
Were little boats that sail toward those isles of yours that wait for me

Well, now
If little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you
Little by little
If suddenly you forget me
Do not look for me
For I shall already have forgotten you

If you think it long and mad the wind of banners that passes through my life
And you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots
That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms
And my roots will set off to seek another land

But if each day, each hour, you feel that you are destined for me
With implacable sweetness
If each day a flower climbs up to your lips to seek me
Ahh my love, ahh my own, in me all that fire is repeated
In me nothing is extinguished or forgotten
My love feeds on your love, beloved
And as long as you live, it will be in your arms without leaving mine

Technically, these aren't "Madonna lyrics" in the sense that the words were written by the Bolivian poet Pablo Neruda. She gave a voice to them for the soundtrack of a film called The Postman (Il Postino)and you can find them online mixed to music by the chillout band Chicane to their tune Offshore - it's a bootleg, of course, but a good one and a must if you're a fan or a collector of Madonna's music!
