STARS AND SHADOWS
Lyrics: Alan and Marilyn Bergman; Music: Claude Debussy ("Beau Soir")
Norman Luboff Choir
Stars and shadows wander through the summer night,
The moon, a chaperone, watches lovers through ever-changing light.
Stars and shadows linger in the summer breeze,
Revealing silhouettes of the lovers who dream beneath the trees.
The world begins its nightly romance
As mountains reach to kiss the sky -
The sand and sea exchange caresses,
And the wind ... the wind is but a sigh.
As long as there is moonlight from the sky above,
The stars will always shine,
And the shadows will shelter those in love -
Will shelter those in love.
