Song Lyrics
Oldies but goodies
Back to List

Stardust   (Nat King Cole)

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 yesterday
The music of the years gone by
Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie, and I am once again with you
When our love was new, and each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago,
Now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall when stars are bright
You are in my arms; the nightingale tells his fairy tale
A paradise where roses bloom
Though I dream in vain in my heart it will remain
My stardust melody; the memory of love's refrain
