and now the purple dusk of twilight time steals across the meadows of my heart

Happiness is...

Driving home in the rain after a night of pub trivia, listening to Harry Connick Jr. sing "Stardust."  (I never thought I'd like anyone other than Nat King Cole singing this song, but Harry does it really well.  I prefer his version to Frank Sinatra's AND Bing Crosby's.)


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 were 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 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
A paradise where roses bloom
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of loves refrain

This is literally one of my top three songs. I prefer Nat's version overall. "Sleepless in Seattle" soundtrack. Ah huh.

PS: We should REALLY get lunch sometime soon since we are both cool SPU employees.

Agreed! And it reminds me of the Sleepless in Seattle soundtrack too. Good stuff!
