"In a Sentimental Mood" as written by Duke Ellington....
In A Sentimental Mood
I can see the stars come thru my room
While your loving attitude
Is like a flame that lights the gloom
On the wings of ev'ry kiss
Drift a melody so strange and sweet
In this sentimental bliss you make my
Paradise complete
Rose pearls seem to fall
It's all like a dream to call you mine
My heart's lighter thing
Since you made me this night a thing divine
In A Sentimental Mood
I'm within a world so heavenly
For I never dreamt
That you'd be loving sentimental me
In A Sentimental Mood
I can see the stars come thru my room
While your loving attitude
Is like a flame that lights the gloom
On the wings of ev'ry kiss
Drift a melody so strange and sweet
In this sentimental bliss you make my
Paradise complete
Rose pearls seem to fall
It's all like a dream to call you mine
My heart's lighter thing
Since you made me this night a thing divine
In A Sentimental Mood
I'm within a world so heavenly
For I never dreamt
That you'd be loving sentimental me

    My InterpretationMy interpretation is that this person was in a depressed, lonely state, but suddenly, someone came into his life who transformed it into pure delight. Now I honestly believe that EVERY lyric of a song has many meanings, and therefore I have an inkling that drugs may be this person I assume of, with its illusion of happiness; but I favour more to the human side. :P
    The line "I can see the stars come thru my room" has two meanings for me: 1, is that the room, or his life, is so incredibly dark, that it rivals the night, and 2, he is seeing his life unfold before his eyes, as the stars represent fate.
    But back to my previous theory, regarding drugs, I can't help but feel that these talks of "heavenly nights" and "paradise" allude to them in some way.
    Maybe I'm going crazy haha. :)
