I Can't Believe You Want to Leave

you know i just cannot believe
that you would really want to leave me
despite my protestations
consider all the devastation

would morning come or
trees grow high
if one day the sun decides to go and
light another sky?
it'd be too dark to see us cry

fire would not give us any heat
the Earth would barely keep us on our feet
if we do as you wish
we'd be behaving selfishly

so you see
it's not just about
you and me
the forces of the universe
count on us

i know he's cool
i know he's flush
he can take you to paris
and all of that stuff
next to him
what have i got?
i wrote you this song
i know it's not much
but…

would the stars in the night
hold any meaning?
would lovers' hearts be sent careening
if the moon decides to leave?
we all would be bereaved

happiness and love would be
so sad they'd stay in
bed all day and
really who could blame them
if they choose to hide their
tears away then

can't you see
it's not just about
you and me
the very fate of all mankind
rests on you changing your mind

even time would stop
as we go back to the very top
you know i just cannot believe
that you would really want to leave
