Shake Down the Stars

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the compilation album Portrait (2003).

Shake down the stars, pull down the clouds
Turn off the moon, do it soon
I can't enjoy this night without you
Shake down the stars

Dry up the streams
Stop all my dreams
Cut off the breeze, do it please
I never thought I'd cry about you
Shake down the stars

I gave you my arms, my lips, my heart
My love, my life, my all
But the best that I had to offer you
I found was all too small

Crush every rose, hush ev'ry prayer
Break every vow, do it now
I know I can't go on without you
Shake down the stars

But the best that I had to offer you
I found was all too small

Crush every rose, hush ev'ry prayer
Break every vow, do it now
Night time will soon appear
Stars shine but you're not here
So please shake down the stars
