[Refrain] Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night 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,
Now my consolation is in the star dust of a song.
Beside a garden wall when stars are bright you are in my arms.
The nightingale tells his fairy tale of paradise where roses grew.
Tho’ I dream in vain, in my heart it will remain:
My star dust melody, the memory of love’s refrain.
