Handful Of Stars Lyrics

Artist: Glenn Miller

A Handful Of Stars
Glenn Miller
Written by Jack Lawrence and Ted Shapiro.
As recorded by the Glenn Miller Orchestra on August 14th 1940 with Ray Eberle.

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...!

Really beautiful lyrics and a pretty melody. I recommend two spectacular versions: Nat King Cole & Johnny Mathis. It's impossible to finf such inspirations today.
