And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we’re apart
You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust
Of the years
Sometimes I wonder why
The lonely night
Dreaming of a song.
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you.
And our love was new, and each kiss an inspiration.
But that was long ago, so long, long ago
And now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song.
Beside a garden wall, when stars were bright
And you were in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
Of paradise where roses grew.
Though I dream in vain, Though I dream in vain, though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love’s refrain.
