[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.

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.
