[Verse 1]
Come where the lights are gleaming,
Come where the flow’rs are dreaming,
Dearie, hear me,
Under your balcony.
The stars are pale above,
Come out and dream, my love.

[Refrain]
In the candlelight,
In the candlelight,
When your love is new
And your heart is true;
Lanterns Japanese,
Swinging in the trees
Send a glow thro’ the garden fair.
By the blue lagoon,
In the month of June,
On a lovely silver night,
We will stroll again
Down thro’ Lovers Lane,
In the glow of the candlelight.

[Verse 2]
The day will soon be breaking,
The world will soon be waking,
Meet me, greet me,
Down where the roses grow.
We’ll hear the nightbird’s song,
As lovers stroll along.

[Refrain]
