HER LYRICS

SPEAK LOW
Kurt Weill / Ogden Nash


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
