[Verse 1]
When o’er the dying day the ev’ning shadows fall,
And fragrant flow’rs are honey sweet with dew,
When one by one the twinkling stars peep out afore,
Then turn my thoughts,
O heart’s beloved to you.
And half adream I fancy you are nestling near,
Your lips close to mine, cheeks aglow,
Your eye beaming love like the stars above
And your heart athrobbing while I whisper low.

[Refrain 1]
O, dream, sweetheart dream of me,
Close to my breast, while the night winds softly sigh
My soul takes wing and love reigns king,
When you are nestling beside me dear

[Verse 2]
The silv’ry moon is shining all the world’s adream,
And some lone bird is calling sweet and low,
It seems my heart is calling just the same for you
As if again ‘twould dearest love bestow.
Then like an angel from above you come to me,
As after the night dawns the day,
Your soul speaks to mine dear, in love divine
When I take you in my arms and fondly say.

[Refrain 2]
O, dream, sweetheart dream of me,
Close to my breast, while the night winds softly sigh
My soul takes wing and love reigns king,
When you are nestling beside me dear
O, say that you will e’er be true
And always nestle beside me dear.
