‘Tis twilight, and shows are fallin’,
Darlin’, darlin’,
‘Tis twilight, and to you
I’m callin’, Darlin’, darlin’.
The night winds are sighin’, for we’re far apart, There’s no need denyin’ the teardrops that start,
For I know that your absence is breakin’ my heart, Darlin’ darlin’.

I know there is no need o’ sighin’,
Darlin’, darlin’,
But somehow my heart keeps a cryin’,
Darlin’, darlin’.
The voice of my heart cryin’ out for its all
Will sound thro’ the deepenin’ shadows that fall,
In hoped that you some day will answer my call, Darlin’, darlin’.
