About The Night That Heaven Fell
The song was title song for the 1958 French film The Night That Heaven Fell, directed by Roger Vadim and starring Brigette Bardot.


The night that heaven fell
Was a night beyond compare
The smile you smile was brighter than the stars
A million dreams were ours to share

The night that heaven fell
Was a lover’s holiday
You touched my hand and suddenly I felt
My heart begin to melt away

And then we kiss
And a spell was cast
But when we kiss
Seems the universe
Went in reverse

And as I looked around
For the world was upside down
For paradise had just come down to earth
To celebrate the birth of love
The night that heaven fell
