Before the morning comes, will I hear your song Come little nightingale, I won't be here for long When you're up there flying, do you care If there's no one else around? When your lover leaves you in the air Do you waver, do you fall?
Now while the moon is high Shall we, nightingale, Duet all through the night A pair of souls for sale Stars cluster glistening Captive till the dawn Patiently listening They've heard it all before Should I stay here or should I go?
I couldn't bear to be alone Was it really love I saw? Oh, now I'll never know What is this I hear? I recognize that song Sweet little nightingale I knew you'd come along Soon when the morning comes. We will both be gone So sing pretty nightingale Lead, I'll follow on.
