Lyrics
Why do Lovers Whisper? (Words and music by Alan Gillis)

Male
Why do lovers whisper when the lights are low?
I want the world to know the way I feel tonight.

Female
It feels so right - the warmth that's in your whisper
I don't need to share the way I feel tonight.

Duet
Bridge

It's taken so long to find the love that I've been waiting for
And now you're here, I'm never letting go

Chorus
Why do lovers whisper when there's no one else around?
The words of love still mean the same
But when you breathe my name
I want to feel your heartbeat next to mine
Hearts that beat in time
Louder than a whisper

You ask me "why do lovers whisper?"

That's why

Instrumental interlude
Repeat bridge
Repeat chorus

Description
Story Behind the Song:
I wanted to write a male/female duet, and this seemed like a valid question, that as far as I can tell, no-one has asked before in a song. (2017)
George Formby used the same four words in sequence in 1938, but in a completely different context.
