C                                    E7
Heavenly shades of night are falling,  it's twilight time,

Am                                     C7
Out of the mist your voice is calling,   it's twilight time,

F            Fdim             C              A9
When purple colored curtains mark the end of day,

    D9                            D7      Dm7     G7
I hear you, my dear, at twilight time.

C                                 E7
Deepening shadows gather splendor   as day is done;

Am                                   C7
Fingers of night will soon surrender    the setting sun.

F           Fdim               C                    A9
I count the moments, Darling, til you're here with me,

    D9       G                  C       Fdim       C
Together, at last, at twilight time.


D9           E7
Here in the afterglow of the day,

    Am                 Fdim  Am  Fdim   Am
We keep our rendezvous, be-neath  the blue;

Here in the sweet and same old way,

    G7                F   Em  Cdim  Dm7
I fall in love again, as  I   did  then.

C                                         E7
Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me,   like days of old,

Am                                       C7
Lighting the spark of love that fills me   with dreams untold;

F          Fdim              C                A9
Each day I pray for evening, just to be with you,

    D9       G                 C      C/B     Edim
Together at last at twilight time,


    D9        G                 C      Fm     C(M7)
Together, at last, at twilight time.
