FRANK SINATRA lyrics - Shake Down The Stars

"Shake Down The Stars"
(James Van Heusen)

Shake down the stars, pull down the clouds
Turn off the moon, do it soon
I can't enjoy this night without you
Shake down the stars

Dry up the streams, stop all my dreams
Cut off the breeze, do it please
I never thought I'd cry about you
Shake down the stars

I gave you my arms, my lips, my heart
My love, my life, my all
But the best that I had to offer you
I found was all too small

Crush every rose, hush every prayer
Break every vow, do it now
I know I cannot live without you
Shake down the stars
