Lotte Lenya - Speak low

TIME IS SO OLD AND LOVE SO BRIEF

Recordamos a la cantante austriaca Lotte Lenya en el treinta y cinco aniversario de su fallecimiento con Speak low, composición de su marido Kurt Weill con letra de Ogden Nash para el musical "One touch of Venus", estrenado en Brodway en 1943. Lenya incluyó la canción en su álbum September song and other American theatre songs of Kurt Weill (1958).

Speak low  (lyrics)

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
