Tomorrow my love leaves, ere the day would be bright
So please stand still I requested of the night
I need memories to last through during his absence
So let me savour every second of his presence.
Don't move I requested the moon
don't go to send the sun so soon
with my love leaving me tomorrow
I don't want the night to narrow.
Be still I pleaded with time
each second to me is worth many a dime
Tomorrow I have to bid my love adieu
So please postpone the arrival of morning dew.
Tomorrow for sure may be too late
and I don't want to blame it on fate
and with no intention to rue
Tonight I will tell him - I love him true
