The Quintones, 1939
- SHADOWS OF MIDNIGHT BLUE is adapted from Tschaikowsky's Andante Cantabile from the Quartet Op. 11.
|WRITTEN BY RAY EVANS & JAY LIVINGSTON
In the middle of the night
The ghosts of our love affair pass in review
And the loveliness that made life bright
Has faded into the shadowy blue above.
Night breezes sigh with a lonely heart
Memories bring SHADOWS OF MIDNIGHT BLUE.
Gone are my dreams now that we’re apart
Gone are those vows promises to be true
Two lips seem to haunt the soul of the night,
But shadows can’t kiss you,
So darling I miss you, miss you,
Heaven above shines on lover’s lane
Showing my heart SHADOWS OF MIDNIGHT BLUE.
