Starlight

Standard

I said, “Oh my, what a marvelous tune”
It was the best night, never would forget how we moved.
The whole place was dressed to the nines,
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight
Like we’re made of starlight

I met Bobby on the boardwalk, summer of ’45
Picked me up late one night at the window,
We were 17 and crazy, running wild, wild
Can’t remember what song he was playing when we walked in
The night we snuck into a yacht club party
Pretending to be a duchess and a prince

And I said, “Oh my, what a marvelous tune”
It was the best night, never would forget how we moved.
The whole place was dressed to the nines,
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight

He said, “Look at you, worrying so much about things you can’t change
You’ll spend your whole life singing the blues if you keep thinking that way”
He was trying to skip rocks on the ocean, saying to me,
“Don’t you see the starlight, starlight?
Don’t you dream impossible things?”

Like “Oh my, what a marvelous tune”
It was the best night, never would forget how we moved
The whole place was dressed to the nines,
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight

Ooh ooh he’s talking crazy
Ooh ooh dancing with me
Ooh ooh we could get married
Have ten kids and teach them how to dream

Oh my, what a marvelous tune
It was the best night, never would forget how we moved
The whole place was dressed to the nines,
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we dream impossible dreams
Like starlight, starlight
Like we dream impossible dreams
Don’t you see the starlight, starlight?
Don’t you dream impossible things?

And we were dancing, dancing…Like we’re made of starlight,

WHY THIS SONG?

Well, when your crush asks you to dance with him for PROM… what would you do?

For me, I almost freaked out! I was fiddling with my phone trying to connect to the WiFi. I looked up and I thought it was just my imagination but he was walking nearer to our table. My instincts told me not to expect…maybe he’ll dance with my friend who’s close to me… but he stood before me and said, “ALEX,CAN I HAVE THIS DANCE?”
