"Speak Low" as written by Ogden Nash and Kurt Weill....
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, everything ends too soon, too soon
I wait, darling, I wait
Will you speak low to me, speak love to me and soon

    General CommentSpeak low is and feels so cruel at the moment. I got this song from my ex. She wants to remain that way or at least I have tought that way. But she sent this song to me and I can't find any other meaning than that she wants me back. I have tryed to do everything to forget her, but she is still on my mind everyday.

    There must be someone wiser and more into songs than me. Please tell me what are these word about.
