Η Βραζιλιάνα στη δική της, uplifting εκδοχή ενός κλασικού του Kurt Weill. Aπό το προ πενταετίας άλμπουμ της Dance Of Time.
Κάτω, το ίδιο τραγούδι, από ένα άλλο πλανήτη : τη Γη του 1943… Τραγουδάει ο ίδιος ο συνθέτης.

Brazilian Eliane in her own, uplifting version of a classic by Kurt Weill. From her album released 5 years ago, Dance Of Time.
Below, the same song, from another planet: the Earth of 1943… The composer himself singing.


❝ 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 ❞
