Star Dust (Carmichael; Parrish)

This song is by Dinah Washington and appears on the album Jazz 'Round Midnight (1993).

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 love was new
And each kiss an inspiration.
But that was long ago,
And 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 sings its fairy tale
Of paradise where roses bloom.

Though I dream in vain,
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody,
The memory of love's refrain.
