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
oh, but that was long ago
now my consolation
 is in the stardust of this song
Beside a garden wall,
when stars are bright,
you are in my arms,
the Nightengale 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 changed some lyrics to match Hoagy's original version performance on Youtube.
