Star Dust
Joni James Lyrics

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, how 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

Besides 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.

I swear I almost fainted when I first heard this after three months of waiting to get a copy of the album (I lived in St. Louis and finally had to mail order it from Sam Goody in New York City). Flash forward many decades later and I am in New York City at Carnegie Hall and Joni tells me she is going to perform it that night in her gala concert there, and using the original David Terry arrangement, including the prelude not on the record. The audience nearly melted; 'twas stunning.

All the greats have recorded this song but Joni has done it as well or better than any of the others. Absolutely beautiful.

Stardust reminds me of a ballroom in the Bronx borough of New York City

Lee Larson

Again, nice voice but terrible arrangement. This is a love story, not a rally cry.
