AWAY FROM YOU (Sheldon Harnick / Richard Rodgers) Sarah Brightman Away from you There is no music, There is no sunlight, The world is gray. Away from you The clocks are frozen, And time's a traveller Who's lost his way. The people I meet Might as well be statues, The words we exchange Might as well be Greek. The room that I'm in May be bright and cheerful But to me It's dim and bleak. I'm half alive Until the moment The door swings open And you walk through. Now my world starts to glow Like a stained-glass window And what was old and cold Is warm and new. And so you see Why I can never be Away from you. Away from you The world is lifeless As though creation Has gone awry. The trees are bare, There are no flowers, The fields are thirsty, The streams are dry. We live, you and I, For a breath of sunlight, So brief an escape From a world of gray. Our moments of warmth Have been touch and go, love, But tonight, we'll touch And stay. The people I meet Might as well be statues, The words we exchange Might as well be Greek. The room that I'm in May be bright and cheerful But to me It's dim and bleak. I'm half alive Until the moment The door swings open And you walk through. Now my soul is afloat On a wave of music That I could feel such joy I never knew. And so you see Why I can never be Away from you.
