My lonely heart keeps drifting back
To how we danced back in the day
The feel of your arms; the whispered words
And the songs Glenn Miller played



Fresh flowers that you always sent
The sweet love tied up with them
Humming the tunes to your favorite songs
My heart still dances the rhythm



Dreaming dreams and making plans
Enraptured by the love we felt
Making the most of a time cut short
And the painful ending fate dealt



A foreign war took you away
From a love not meant to be
And I've spent my life imprisoned by
A haunting stardust melody
