Stardust

今さらながら Nat King Cole の素晴らしい “Stardust” 。ステレオ録音である。

 

1957:

Nat King Cole 

 

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 wandered 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 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 the garden wall

When stars are bright

You are 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

The memory of love's refrain
