Lyrics:
[Introductory verses:]
  And now the purple dusk of twilight time
  Steals across the meadows of my heart
  High up in the sky the little moon starts to
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
a 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
