Stardust Lyrics

by Aaron Neville

And now the purple dust 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'll wander down the lane and far far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by, gone by

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely nights dreaming of a song
That melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
Ah, but that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song

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

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