Music by Hoagy Carmichael
Lyrics by Mitchell Parish


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
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.
