Petra Berger - If came the hour
Tekst: Brendan Graham / Muziek: Rolf Løvland
(2006)






If came the hour, if came the day
If came the year, when you went away
How could I live, I’d surely die
What would life be if you said: “Goodbye”



How would I laugh, how could I love
Could I believe in a God above
How would I hope, how could I pray
If came the hour, if came the day



But you are here, lying beside me
I watch you breathe, each rise and fall
Without you near, then there would be
Nothing at all



If, in this world, all things must pass
And we must raise the parting glass
No words would ever come, what could I say
If came the hour, if came the day



There’d be no music in my soul
How could I ever dance, no ‘you’ to hold
How could I ever hear the violin
There’d be no song I could ever sing



But you are here, lying beside me
I watch you as you breathe, each rise and fall
Without you near, then there would be
Nothing at all



Now you awake, the dawn sweeps in
I touch your mouth, I touch your skin
How would I ever live, if you should go away
If came the hour, if came the day
