Barbra Streisand – 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 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 descends, everything ends
Too soon, too soon

I wait, darling, I wait
Will you speak low to me
Speak love to me and soon

I wait, darling, I wait
Will you speak low to me, slow to me
Oh please, just don’t say no to me
Let it flow to me, slow to me

Soon, soon, soon, soon
Darling, speak low to me
Darling, speak slow to me
