Probably over recorded by so many artists. But at the time it was new and fresh to me. Mitchell's beautiful accompaniment made this an easy choice. I often have chosen the songs I record by the musicians I work with. Having worked with them I know what they have mastered. Since all my recordings have been with out rehearsals. I could learn the song and they knew it so it was pretty easy to get it in the first take. There was no over dubbing or all the modern choices when I did this cd that I knew about or could afford. So glad Joe encouraged me to record. I met Gene Lee (English lyricist) on a Jazz cruise. I was grateful to meet him and hear him sing. So gifted.

Lyrics

Quiet nights and quiet stars
Quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the silence that surrounds us

Quiet nights and quiet dreams
Quiet walks by quiet streams
And the window lookin' on the mountains and the sea how lovely

This is where to be
Here with you so close to me
Till the final flicker of life's ember

I who was lost and lonely
Believing life was a only a bitter tragic joke
Have found with you the meaning of existence oh, my love

-instrumental interlude-

This is where to be
Here with you so close to me
Till the final flicker of life's ember

I who was lost and lonely
Believing life was a only a tragic joke
Have found with you the meaning of existence oh, my love

QUIET NIGHTS OF QUIET STARS (Lita Roza)

as recorded by Lita Roza
1963


Quiet nights of quiet stars,
Quiet chords on my guitar,
Floating in the silence that surrounds us.

Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams,
Quiet walks by quiet streams,
Climbing hills where lovers go
To watch the world below,
How lovely!

This is where i wanna be,
Here with you so close to me
until the final flicker of life's ember.

I who was lost and lonely,
Believing life was a only
A bitter tragic joke, have found with you
The meaning of existence oh, my love.

Quiet nights of quiet stars,
Quiet chords on my guitar,
Floating on the silence that surrounds us.

Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams,
Quiet walks by quiet streams,
Climbing hills where lovers go
To watch the world below together.

This is how I want to be,
in this mood of reverie
Until the final flicker of life's ember.

My life was dull each minute,
Until I found you in it,
And all at once the quiet nights I knew
Became those quiet nights of loving you,
Of loving you,
Of loving you.
