Speak Low





Speak low

When you speak , love

Our summer day

withers away

too soon

too soon

Speak low

when you speak , love

Our moment is swift

like ships a drift

we're swept apart

too soon

Speak low

darling speak low

love is a spark

lost in the dark

too soon

too soon

I feel

wherever I go

that tomorrow is near

tomorrow is here

and always too soon

Time is so old

and love so brief

Love is pure gold

and time a thief

We're late

darling we're late

The curtain decends

ev'ry thing ends

too soon

too soon

I wait

darling I wait

Will you speak low to me

speak love to me and soon.
