Oh, Woman, don't you know me? Has it been so long that you forgot I thought of you just yesterday My time it has been dragging And I've changed girl but so have you Please don't turn your face away It's in your eyes I know Where did the sparkle go?
Sparkle eyes used to shine ev'ry day God, I wish I never had seen you looking this way Can't recall just who was wrong Guess it doesn't matter now To dredge the past I have no desire But it hurts to feel your sadness And to see the life you've led Faceless fountains cooled your fire It was mine not long ago Where did the sparkle flow?
Sparkle eyes used to smile at the rain Don't I wish that I could see it again Where did the sparkle go?
Now if I only knew where to begin Girl, I'd try to break your fall and stop your spin But time has changed us both too many ways And I'm looking at a strange and empty face
And you eyes used to shine every day If I had only never seen you looking this way Those faceless fountains they cooled your fire It was mine not so very long ago Your eyes would laugh at the rain You don't know how I wish I could see it again I just can't stand to watch goin' down slow Where did the sparkle go?
