Barbra Streisand - If You Ever Leave Me Lyrics



[Vince:]
When I fall, you're my place to land.
I lose my touch, you're my hands,
The one I hold on to.
If you run out of reason to try
I'll love enough for both you and I
I'll be the one you can run to.
[Barbra:]
I'd rather go through any pain love puts us through
Than to spend one day without you by my side.

[Both:]
If you ever leave me, will you take me with you?
If you're ever lonely, I wanna be lonely too.
My home's beside you, no matter where you may go.
My love's inside you, even more than you know.

[Barbra:]
In a world of anger and lies
I find peace in your eyes
A flame in the darkness.

[Both:]
Ooh, And through all space and time
'Til every star refuses to shine

[Barbra:]
You know where my heart is.
I'd rather go through any pain love puts us through

[Both:]
Than to spend one day without you by my side
If you ever leave me, will you take me with you?
If you're ever lonely, I wanna be lonely too, Woah.
My home's beside you, no matter where you may go.

[Barbra:]
Where you may go

[Both:]
My love's inside you, even more than you know.

And I can't remember life without you
The way it used to be
Feels like a million years away.

[Vince:]
Well Hold me 'til the angels sing.

[Barbra:]
Tell me every little thing.

[Both:]
Promise me forever from this day

If you ever leave me, will you take me with you?
If you're ever lonely, I wanna be lonely too, Woah.
My home's beside you, no matter where you may go.

[Vince:]
Where you may go

[Both:]
My love's inside you, even more than you know.

[Barbra:]
Even more than you know.

[Vince:]
Even more than you know.

[Both:]
Even more than you know.
Even more than you know.

  1. Zeynep Simge

    Such a song ❤️

  2. MARIE-THERESE MARCEL

    Quel beau duo🥰

  3. Catherine Fenderson

    Richard Marx wrote this song and it was him who told Barbara he knew the person who would be perfect to sing it with her. She asked who and he said Vince Gill. Both Barbara and Richard were being interviewed about the songs on the Album and they was asked specifically about how the duet between her and Vince came to be. Richard said he suggested Vince was the best person to sing this song. Richard and Vince have co-written songs together. Also they have sung on each others records in the past.

  7. Macushla XOXO

    ‘...But
    if each day,
    each hour,
    you feel that you are destined for me
    with implacable sweetness,
    if each day a flower
    climbs up to your lips to seek me,
    ah my love, ah my own,
    in me all that fire is repeated,
    in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
    my love feeds on your love, beloved,
    and as long as you live it will be in your arms without leaving mine.’

    Pablo Neruda

  8. Dave Glo

    I wouldn’t have expected this duet to be so good, mainly because Vince and Barbra’s styles are so different. But it works. And I think there’s a great affection between them.

    Barbra’s voice is like no other. Unfortunately age has taken its toll on her voice now.

  34. Thomas Woo

    "I'm so bored I think I'll write a song". Vince should have avoided this collaboration.

  39. Randolph Anckle

    super song you go Barbra show them how's it's be sing damn superb

  40. Gay Male Stink Fetishes

    I understand that this was Barbra's and James Brolin's wedding vows in a song, but Brolin couldn't sing too well, so she sang it with Gill. lol Beautiful idea and EXCEPTIONAL song, however...

  41. WildPhotoShooter

    I've always though  Barbra Streisand's voice has a quality that no other female vocalist has.

  42. Cindy Jones

    I'm having a hard time let you go I care for kind and caring for so long I do want you go it. Hurt so much.

  43. Eric Mark

    Hahaha, this music video is so awkward!

  44. Nathalie Lonergan

    I subscribe

    Nathalie Lonergan

    I subscribe to you

  45. pearl trotter

    Love this song.. They do a wonderful job on it.

  46. De Haendel

    Breathtaking!!!

  47. Guy Will

    What is incredible about Streisand is that she literally can sing anything. I think she absolutely loves these types of duets. She seems so comfortable with Vince Gill and he seems to get there too. Why anyone need to denigrate this performance does not understand the word "chemistry"

  48. Anita Shoe

    Awesome song they're so good together too bad we don't don't have music like this anymore

  49. KarlaElaine100

    Vince can sing duets with so many others and do it so well.

  50. Dora Goffman

    Absolutely love this song!

  51. Dale Ledford

    I still think this is one of the most beautiful songs Ms. Streisand has ever done. I wish it had been a hit.

  52. Bob Shaw

    Great duo . They sound great together. They are two of my favorite singers .

  53. Ursula Maurer

    lovely, love the artists

  54. geo752

  56. Cindy Jones

    God gave me you

  57. sparry

    I need a cuddle from Barbra. She is absolutely gorgeous.

    J. B.

    I wouldn't mind being held by Barbra.

  58. Shirley Lanham

  59. Danny Davis

  63. parisjok

    her best male singing will always be master Barry Gibb

  64. shunlvswx

    I don't think Vince ever done a bad duet. He sounds good with everybody. Vince has one of those voices who blends with everybody.

    I remembered when this song came out in 1998. I fell in love with this song.

  65. Zoltan Attila Elekman

    good f****** lip singers both of them are drag queens

  66. PowerEagle20642

    our wedding song. Love it. And still happily married for 12 years

  67. James Mckenny

    Streisand why didn't she performed live on her famous song Woman in love.

  68. cg505able

    Vince is the ultimate sound! Streisand is always a songstress!

  69. Fauzy Rahman

    Don williiams

  70. Amy York

  71. Deborah Hill

    I loved Barbra for years! In my mind were BFF"s.

  72. Mecie Pascoe

    I love this song it makes me cry every time I hear it

  73. Oceana B

    This always makes my tears run down! Everytime I hear it the memory will come up. My beloved one made once a big mistake that I hardly could bear it. I wanted to leave him but I love him so much that I couldn't do it! Then I heard this song, and it made me unbelievably cried alot till all my tears gone!

    Sonny Cannon

    You see,,,, love is NOT just a thought,,,, it's alive, it's very powerful! If we would only listen to it!!!!

  74. Thu Yang

    Gosh this is the first time; I am just crying just by listening to this song. It makes me hunger for a love like this!!

  75. Jackie Crady

    Will be a song in my wedding. Their voices together are magical. Have loved this song for so many years.

  76. john zagmester

    barbara ,, a voice .. none other like it

  77. MusicLover_KB

    My mom had a Barbara Streisand CD that she would play all the time in the car when me and my siblings were younger. This song ALWAYS stood out in my mind, and it's the most memorable song for me. On an additional note, looking at Barbara and the way she sings, it's hard not to think of Lea Michele singing as Rachel Berry on Glee

  78. Bebo Gomez

    I love this, their voices compliment each other.

  79. betty dale peters

    I love this. their voices blend beautifully. Thanks so much for letting me hear this!

    Bebo Gomez

    +angel williamson Very nice, God bless you both.

  85. Derek Foote

    Absolutely beautiful!

  86. Alex Townsend

    Beautiful duet!! Haven't heard it in years. I stumbled upon it after talking to my British girlfriend about Barbara Streisand one night. Am I ever glad we had that conversation.

  87. Don Hawkins

    most people don't know Barbara loves country music..
    back in the 1970s she traveled to Nashville to record w/ Billy Sherrill..
    (Tammy Wynette's producer) project was never completed , Babbs walked out on Billy!

  88. Normando Snoopy

    Love this duet.  Their voices are great together.  Glad Barb is coming back and singing more.  William, get over the hate and listen.

  89. stela menezes

    If You Ever Leave Me  - Barbra duet with Vince Gill

  90. William Baker

    Gill is great....but why would he sing with this bitch of a traitor....she is a big nosed piece of trash in the same mold as Hanoi Jane Fonda.....she is pure vomit.....and I am as mature as any person here....but bet yer ass, I am in no way a damn liberal coward...........I have been accused of being blunt.....I have no idea why....

    Karen Miller

    Has nothing to do with her opinions. Its about their music. Stop hate dude.

    Dave Fuller

    +William Baker You have no idea why...Yeah, RIGHT...LOL!!!

    MusicLover_KB

    +William Baker What has Barbara Streisand done to be a traitor? I've never heard anyone speak negatively of her.

    cliff smith

    sumthing you cant do dick heah

  91. Wilma Bakker

    This song allways brings tears to my eyes.

    sunshinec54

    Me too! :-(

  92. Courtney Currie

    Beautiful piece

    William Baker

    a piece of crap by a traitor and a person named Gill.....

    Dave Fuller

    +William Baker She is a traitor because?

  93. Annette Dacosta

    They say nothing last forever, but I believe in a love that will ......even after they are gone ___ lesson learned .
