Heavenly shades of night are falling,|
It's twilight time.
Out of the mist your voice is calling,
It's twilight time,
When purple colored curtains
Mark the end of the day.
I hear you my dear at twilight time.
Deepening shadows gather splendor
Here, in the after-glow of day,
Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
