If You Leave Lyrics - OMD

Review The Song (19)

If you leave, don’t leave now
Please don’t take my heart away
Promise me, just one more night
Then we’ll go our separate ways
We’ve always had time on our sides
Now it’s fading fast
Every second, every moment
We’ve got to, We’ve got to make it last

I touched you once, I touched you twice
I won’t let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd still be friends someday

If you leave I won't cry
I won't waste one single day
But if you leave don't look back
I'll be running the other way
Seven years went under the bridge
Like time was standing still
Heaven knows what happens now
You’ve got to, You’ve got to say you will

I touched you once, I touched you twice
I won't let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd meet again

I touched you once, I touched you twice
I won’t let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we’d still be friends

I touched you once, I touched you twice
I won’t let go at any price
I need you now like I needed you then
You always said we'd meet again someday

ohwoah ohwoah ohwoah ohwoah ohwoah

If you leave (ohwoah)
If you leave (ohwoah)
If you leave (ohwoah)
Don’t look back
Don’t look back

On Daytona Beach | Reviewer: Rick | 8/20/13

I listened to this song at least five times a day for three days while laying next to the lady who went her way shortly after that failed short attempt to get back together. At least
we both got a good tan!

Been at least 21 years or more ...

Brings back the hurt - like a knife in the gut for a few seconds everytime i hear it.

We both have awesome families now .... but what could have been
pops back into my head everytime I hear it.

I remember this song when I was little. | Reviewer: Alyssa | 1/3/13

I remember this song when I was little. I was three years old. I remember it on the way back when. That was in 1986. When I've heard it on the radio. The song was played on VH1 and MTV.

great 80's new wave song | Reviewer: christian | 10/3/12

Where I reside in california there is a station that plays only 80's and stuff from the new millenium its like 1990-99 escaped which I find good new wave,synthe pop is what I like the most that why 80's soundtracks are so great its like one the berlin wall came down the pop music died being created in the 80's myself a product of 1982 makes me happy it wasn't 92' the music of 1992 wasn't ecclectic or dorky hair in the 80s was better hairstyles in the new dacade were all about grunge bland the early 80e band took the time to craft individual hairstyles you take george michael against curt cobain ,curt cobain would look emotionally unstable why he killed himself no one will know why god rest his soul,the music and self expression of the 80's and individuality topped 1992 where dirty long hair and plaid was the rage fif I could see my birth I would take 1982 london over 1992 seattle any which day so what if 80's new wave members were the early metrosexuals ,it boils down to personal choice living a flamboyant life with odd hair styles and color really colorful fashion beats plaid and dirty smelly long hair,band members of the new wave era cared about appearances grunge and post millenium musical artist went stale

From somebody "old" . . . | Reviewer: Steve | 6/25/12

. . . who was "there" in the '80s: This is one of the few from that time that sticks with you. I don't even much care for '80s stuff, at least not in the " '80s style" (synthesizers, ambiguous gender, usually not-from-USA), but I really like "If You Leave", even though it is one of THE prime examples of "all of the above". To all of the younger people who think the '80s were great: Keep looking farther-back in music. The '80s were, in fact, the last decade in music that represented a "new style" (there was very good stuff in the *early* '90s, but it all went back to *much* older stuff, around '70 --- "grunge" came from Neil Young, who was and is one of the great *'60s* rockers), but you'll find *much* better stuff if you go back before 1975. I speak with more than a little authority on this subject, age-wise --- I graduated high-school in 1981 (you do the math on how old I am *chuckle!*), so I saw and heard " a lot" of the latter half of the 20th Century. The stuff that I like is all "before my time", so I'm with you, there ("damnit, it all happened before I was even here!" LOL!(, but I can also be objective --- I hated both disco and punk-rock, which were in "my time", but dearly *love* anything before 1971 . . . oh, and a few select "later" things, like OMD's "If You Leave" :-) ."If You Leave" is over-the-top "romantic" --- if you like it :-), I'd suggest early-'60s "girl-group" stuff (Phil Spector, et al), and from the late '70s to '90s, anything written by Jim Steinman (the guy who wrote the *good* albums for Meat Loaf). "I Close My Eyes and Count to Ten", from the former era, and, of course, "Total Eclipse of the Heart", from Steinman (best-known recording being Bonnie Tyler's).

Nostalgia | Reviewer: :-xxx | 6/17/12

It was 3 years ago this week, when by sheer chance, and the help of my nutty cousin,, I met the most breathtaking woman. It only lasted months, the miles between us wasn't kind and I wasn't in the best of situations. Now, I have things sorted out, and I'm better than ever, but she's married to someone else and I still hopelessly hold a torch for her. Three years, and not a day goes by that I don't think of her and miss her terribly. This song is our anthem. To the one in Azle.... :-xxx

The 80's were best and | Reviewer: Dennis Teel | 9/29/11

this song is one of the millions of reasons.i recently ordered a 12 dvd set that in total,contains 373 music videos of the 80's,this being one of them.the 80's were so cool.why is everything in the 2000's so messed up?in the 80's,people were happier,the colors were brighter like in the malls ,the signs and decor of each shop displayed colors,not the depressing blah that we see there now days.clothes were bright and colorful and so many diffrent styles of clothing.it was okay to have long, short or medium length hair and even a bald look.everything was acceptable.there were several styles of music playing on your local rock station..debbie gibson,metallica and the beastie boys to name just a few of the various styles.it was okay to like tiffany and aerosmith at the same time.mid 90's came along with the predominant rap and hip hop junk and there went the neighborhood--happiness and fun and good music have left the building//

beautiful | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/29/11

In 1986 I was 13 years and they were the golden era of music, because today sucks.
But the movie Pretty in Pink was excellent.
Enjoy the time beacuse it´s like the water of a river never you can touch it twice it goes on and never come back!!!!!

True Love | Reviewer: Julie | 8/3/10

This song reminds me of my one and only true love. Although we know we can never be we always will be if you get my drift. He gave me this song almost 10 years ago and I still think of him every time I here it. Our relationship is a complicated one but this song says it all. Great song!

terrific | Reviewer: giovanni | 8/7/10

I just love this song, when I first heard that I think I was a kid, but I just love it, in fact, I'm love and I hope it can work good.
This song really reminds me the movie, a very good one " pretty in pink"

takes me back to the fun and innocent 1980's | Reviewer: Duane B | 4/25/09

Every time I hear this song it takes me back to the 1980's and having crushes on guys in my class and Molly Ringwald movies such as Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, and the Breakfast Club. I love this song, one the the best songs of that time in my opinion.

Resignation - a must do - not a want to do | Reviewer: Luigi | 12/18/08

I'm going through this situation right now, I have to quit seeing this married person because this person is not for me; there's no winning for me here. However I'd love to have "one more time then we'll go our separate ways"; very nice song for this ocasion... ;-)

inevitable | Reviewer: Thor Ironton | 12/4/08

A song of desperation, and a song of resignation. Please don't leave....but I know you must, and will. Perfect blend of music and lyrics. Reminds me so much of me and.......oh, if I told you, you wouldn't quite get it, nor appreciate it. I need to tell someone. But never will. For various reasons. Maybe YOU will read this, and then get it. Maybe.

If You Leave at Karaoke | Reviewer: James | 10/31/08

If your not a very strong singer, this song is great to do at Karaoke . I suck at Karaoke but whenever I do this song I get a lot of praises. It's not to long and very easy to get all the words out. After a few times at it you will be a SUPERSTAR!

The 80s | Reviewer: Chrstsey | 4/9/08

Well, I heard this song yesterday on the radio station. Reminds me back in the days when my friend's brother and his friend use to play it all the time. Everytime I hear that song reminds me of my child hood friends Nick and Heath. Last time I saw them was a few years ago and my how handsome they gotten!
