Speak low when you speak, love,
Our summer day withers a - way too soon, too soon.
Speak low when you speak, love
Our moment is swift, like ships a - drift we're swept apart.
Speak low, darling speak low,
Love is a spark lost in the dark, too soon, too soon,
I feel that wherever I go 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 des - cends, ev'rything ends too soon, too soon,
I wait darling, I wait
Will you speak love to me, speak love to me and soon.
