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, how I spend 
The lonely nights
 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
And now my consolation 
Is in the stardust of a song

 Beside the garden wall
When stars are bright 
You are in my arms
The nightingale 
 Tells his fairytale 
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

Written by: Mitchell Parish, Hoagy Carmichael
