Lyrics I RECALL THE STORY,
THAT NIGHT OF LOVE AND GLORY,
A NIGHT
THAT LEFT MY HEART ROMANTIC SCARS.
WE STOOD SO NEAR TO HEAVEN
THAT I REACHED CLEAR TO HEAVEN
AND GATHERED YOU A HANDFUL OF STARS.
SWEET REMEMBERED HOUR
WHEN LOVE BEGAN TO FLOWER
WITH MOONLIGHT
THROUGH THE TREES LIKE SILVER BALLS.
AND AS THE MOON GREW OLDER,
I REACHED ACROSS YOUR SHOULDER
AND GATHERED YOU A HANDFUL OF STARS.

I PLACED MY FINGERTIPS UPON YOUR LIPS
AND STARS FELL IN YOUR EYES,
MOONGLOW MADE A HALO OF YOUR HAIR.
SUDDENLY YOU LOOKED AT ME
AND DREAMS BEGAN TO RISE,
OH, WHAT THINGS UNSPOKEN
TREMBLED IN THE AIR.

OUR HEARTS WERE MADLY BEATING
AND THEN OUR LIPS WERE MEETING
AND VENUS SEEMED TO MELT
RIGHT INTO MARS.
THEN WHILE WE STOOD CARESSING,
BLUE HEAVEN SENT A BLESSING,
A SHOWER OF A HANDFUL OF STARS.
