Lyrics:

[Verse 1]

I look out my window at the beautiful stars,
I drink in their beauty, and dream.
I dream of a maiden pure and fair,
A maid with a thousand charms,
I almost feel her presence there,
As I hold out my longing arms.

[Refrain]

O Star! My Star!
Shine on for me, my sweet!
I may not touch they tender hand,
But worship at thy feet.
O Star! My Star!
Still shine for me, my sweet!
Watch over me and keep me,
Till we again shall meet.

[Verse 2]

The beautiful, beautiful night so still, so white,
Has led me in dreamland to live.
I live on the days she loved but me,
Unchanged by the passing years,
One face, one voice is with me,
Melting my heart to tears.

[Refrain]
