    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 wandered 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
Of paradise where roses grew

Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain
