Sleep now, moon
I'll watch over her while the sun is up
And you'll have her eyes again soon
It's a glorious day
And my lonely heart is tired again
And I am starved for her attention

That's when Paula sparks
That's when Paula sparks a little light in my eye
(Ever since she went away)
That's when Paula sparks a little light in my eye
(I miss her more everyday)
That's when Paula sparks

Sleep now, sweet princess
I'll cheer for you silently
And carefully not to disturb
And I'll be ready on that evening
When you're starved for my attention
And you'll say, you'll say
"Wait now, prince
There's a brilliant sky above
And a jealous moon in love
And they are starved for our attention"

Ever since you went away
That's when Paula sparks
I miss her more everyday
That's when Paula sparks a little light in my eye
Ever since you went away
That's when Paula sparks a little light in my eye
I miss her more everyday
That's when Paula sparks

Sleep now, moon
That's when Paula sparks
Ever since you went away
That's when Paula sparks a little light in my eye
Ever since you went away
That's when Paula sparks a little light in my eye
Ever since you went away
That's when Paula sparks

    General Commentthis is such a good song...how can you not fall in love with it? "it's a glorious day and my lonely heart is tired again and I am starved for her attention."
    this is one of my favorite parts in the song. i relate to it so much...just getting sick of bein by myself and waiting for the attention of that one guy. lame....but its an amazing song.

    General CommentI really like this song especially towards the end when the singer extends the "ever since you went away". Its freakin' amazing. Even though the singer does sound like a woman in some points throughout the album. If you can get past that, its a great album.

    General CommentFrom the time this was merely a poem Aaron had written, to the making of it into a song, and through all the many versions of the song, i have always loved When Paula Sparks. It is just written so well.

    General CommentSuch an amazing band, I must admit. This is one of my favorite songs by them. And I love the "starved for your attention" line they put in a couple of their songs.
