And now the purple dusk of twilight time
High up in the sky the little stars climb
You wander down the lane and far away
Love is now the stardust of yesterday

The lonely nights
The melody
And I am once again with you
And each kiss an inspiration
And now my consolation

When stars are bright
The nightingale
Of paradise, where roses grew
In my heart it will remain
The memory of love's refrain
