Til Wind do them apart

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
