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?
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

Songwriters
MANZANERA, PHIL / FERRY, BRYAN
