Nat King Cole - Stardust
Tekst: Mitchell Parish / Muziek: Hoagy Carmichael
(1957)






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 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
