"Sparkle" as written by Thomas Darrell Linton, Richard E Burch, Zachary Michel Lind and James Christopher Adkins....
She's got a worry I don't know
Only nineteen in this picture
Don't take the mystery away from me I'm so sorry
Now promises were made and broken as they're told
What makes you put trust in me?

With such a worried heart
You'll spend your lifetime waiting
I'm only asking once
To catch the sparkle fading
Away somewhere behind your eyes

I'm taking my time, you take it for the night
I'm taking it, but you sit down and you smile
I wanna know what you really think it seems a little risky now
If you do it 'cause you want to, do it 'cause you can
That doesn't always mean you should

With such a worried heart
You'll spend your lifetime waiting
I'm only asking once
To catch the sparkle fading
Away somewhere behind your eyes

She's got a worry I don’t know
Only nineteen in this picture
Don't take the mystery away from me I said I'm sorry
Now promises were made and broken as they're told
It's just become a wasted thing

With such a worried heart
You'll spend your lifetime waiting
I'm only asking once
To catch the sparkle fading
So far away behind your eyes

I'm only asking once
I'm only asking once
So far away behind your eyes
So far away behind your eyes

    General CommentThey do two versions live...this is the one they do more often, the other lyrics are of the mp3 download that's floating around online

    General CommentI do believe theres quite a few different versions other than this and the alternate. Check out Stevesraremusic channel on youtube. He has sparkle on an album and two different live ones with different lyrics
