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 stardust 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
Though I dream in vain, in my heart it will remain
My stardust melody, the memory of love's refrain

Sometimes I wonder why, 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, so long ago, so long ago
Now my consolation is in the stardust 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
Though I dream in vain, in my heart it will remain
My stardust melody, the memory of love's refrain
