"Sparkle" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
The pressure builds, you buy a gift
You're hoping that your dread will lift
It glitters on her like a glass
You shudder as it comes to pass
Apologize to Luce and Lil'
Converse with Ed, a drive with Jill
Your friends confine you in their worlds
One by one, a string of pearls
Confuse you say, this isn't me
You hover in their unity
Ashamed, you slowly lose your grasp
Release the links, undo the clasp
The skin that drips down from the tree
And peels back slowly from your knee
Erupts into your lung and heart
You laugh and laughing, fall apart

Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart

Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart

Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart
Laugh and laughing, fall apart

Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart

Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart
Laugh and Laughing fall apart

    General CommentProbably the anxiety into elation this song captures so perfectly. I believe Trey is referring to the feelings he felt when proposing to his wife.

    General CommentThe lyrics to this were written by Tom Marshall about being being pressured into marriage. He has said that "sparkle" is one of the only songs written about his wife that she knows is about her. When he sent Trey the lyrics, Trey decided to make the song really happy because of how sad the lyrics were. I LOVE this song
