Reply to "Great Lyrics"

This one came up on the iPod on the way home tonight - IMO one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded as far as both lyrics, melody and voice.

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 nights dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our live was new
And each kiss an inspiration
Bit that was long ago
Now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall where stars are bright
You are in my heart
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
A paradise where roses bloom
Though I dream in vain
In my heart you will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain
