Steppenwolf – Sparkle Eyes lyrics

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
Please don't turn your face away
And I've changed girl but so have you
It's in your eyes I know
Where did the sparkle go?

God, I wish I never had seen you looking this way
Sparkle eyes used to shine ev'ry day

Can't recall just who was wrong
Guess it doesn't matter now
But it hurts to feel your sadness
To dredge the past I've no desire
Faceless fountains cooled your fire
And to see the life you've led
Where did the sparkle flow?
It was mine not long ago
Sparkle Eyes used to smile at the rain

Where did the sparkle go?
Don't I wish that I could see it again
Now if I only knew where to begin

Girl, I'd try to break your fall and stop your spin
And I'm looking at a strange and empty face
If I had only never seen you lookin' this way
But time has changed us both too many ways

Those faceless fountains they cooled your fire
And your eyes used to shine every day
You don't know how I wish I could see it again
It was mine not so very long ago
Your eyes would laugh at the rain
Where did the sparkle goI just can't stand to watch you goin' down slow
