Handful of Stars

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...!
