"Stardust" as written by Richard Lawrence Juzwick, Aaron Vincent Nordstrom, Brian Steele Medina, Alessandro Paveri, Michael Anthony Salerno and Kevin Churko....
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, 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 the garden wall
When stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale
Tells his fairytale
Of paradise, where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain

    General Commentthe first comment?!
    this song is a classic! i heard it first in Sleepless in Seattle and liked it immediately. Upon listening to it more I loved the bittersweet lyrics of a lost love. It's haunting and beautiful and Nat's delivery is just perfect.
    I think I'll go listen to it now...

    General CommentPaints such a vivid picture.

    Especially... "The nightingale tells his fairytale, a paradise where roses grew. Though I dream in vain...in my heart it will remain, my stardust melody. The memory of love's refrain."

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs. The melody was written while Hoagy Carmichael was walking across Indiana University's beautiful campus in the 1920s. It was originally meant to be a faster, jazzier number. The words were added later, and I think he originally recorded the song with lyrics in 1929. It doesn't have the first two stanzas, and it's pretty bare compared to this recording. The vocals aren't as smooth as this one's, but there's an awesome whistling solo and a simplicity to it.
