Verse:
The time is coming soon to say goodbye,
A time of sadness it will be,
But, honey, listen to my parting sigh,
And linger on awhile with me.
 
Chorus:
The stars shine above you,
Yet linger awhile.
They whisper "I love you",
So, linger awhile.
And when you have gone away,
Each hour will seem a day.
I've something to tell you,
So, linger awhile.
