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,
Were 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 here

Tomorrow is near
And always too soon

Time is so old
And love's 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
When you speak low to me,
Speak love to me and soon.
