Speak Low Lyrics

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 adrift
We're swept away 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

Late
Darling, we're late
The curtain descends
Everything ends
Too soon, too soon

I wait
Darling, I wait
Will you speak low to me?
Speak love to me
And 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 descends
Everything ends
Too soon, too soon

I wait
Darling, I wait
Will you speak low to me?
Speak love to me
Speak love to me
Speak love to me

Speak low to me
But speak to me
Speak to me soon
