Roxy Music – Nightingale lyrics

(ferry/manzanera)

Before the morning comes, will I hear your song
Come little nightingale, I won't be here for long
When you're up there flying, do you care
If there's no one else around?
When your lover leaves you in the air
Do you waver, do you fall?
Now while the moon is high
Shall we, nightingale,
Duet all through the night
A pair of souls for sale
Stars cluster glistening
Captive till the dawn
Patiently listening
They've heard it all before
Should I stay here or should I go?
I couldn't bear to be alone
Was it really love I saw?
Oh, now I'll never know
What is this I hear?
I recognise that song
Sweet little nightingale I knew you'd come along
Soon when the morning comes.
We will both be gone
So sing pretty nightingale
Lead, I'll follow on.
