Tear a star from out the sky,
And the sky feels blue,
Tear a petal from a rose,
And the rose weeps, too,
Take your heart away from mine,
And mine will surely break,
My life is yours to make,
So please keep this heart awake!
Would you take the wings from birds,
So that they can't fly?
Would you take the ocean's roar
And leave just a sigh?
All this your heart won't let you do,
This is what I beg of you,
Don't take your love from me.
Don't take your love from me!
