Shake Down the Stars

by Frank Sinatra

Francis Albert "Frank" Sinatra, /sɨˈnɑːtrə/, (December 12, 1915 – May 14, 1998) was an American singer and film actor of Italian origin.




Shake down the stars, pull down the clouds
Turn off the moon, do it soon
I can't enjoy the night without you
Shake down the stars
Dry up the streams, stop all my dreams
Cut off the breeze, do it please
I never thought I'd cry about you
Shake down the stars
I gave you my arms, my lips, my heart
My love, my life, my all
But the best that I had to offer you
I found was all too small
Crush every rose, hush every prayer
Break every vow, do it now
I know I cannot live without you
Shake down the stars
