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, ev'rything ends Too soon, too soon, I wait darling, I wait Will you speak low to me, Speak love to me and soon.
