Take off the sparkle and what is left…?
Can you see it? 
Will you recognize it, 
for what it is…
Easier to see the stains, to feel the cracks and
to smell the fear. 

Take off the sparkle
can you still love what is left?

Take off the sparkle. 
And take a good look.
See what is there, not – 
not what you want…
what is there.

Take off the sparkle
and the rest of the world 
And comes back to life. 
Shines on you 
and me.
