Elvis Costello Sparkling Day Lyrics

Last updated: 06/12/2012 11:00:00 AM

Oh, it was such a sparkling day
That I should be singing its praises
Just to catch my senses as they slip away
But my sentences and phrases
Are about as worthless as wonder can be

And there are words that I could say
Perhaps I lack the sense of occasion
Seems that I've been looking down so long you see
That it seemed like up to me
I should be ashamed I'm sure you will agree

[Pre Chorus:]
So don't go calling out for Jude or Anthony
Maybe I was lost
I'm a hopeless case
So that every night I listen carefully
But there is no message from me
No message from me

[Chorus:]
Sparkling day [x2]
Things I never said
Some things you never heard
Sparkling day [x2]
Now I wait in vain to see
That there was no message from me

When love is constant and content
You always fear some lingering temptation
Silhouettes escaping underneath locked doors
I'm astonished and amazed
Perhaps my message was erased.

[Pre Chorus:]
So don't go calling out for Jude or Anthony
Maybe I was lost
I'm a hopeless case
So that every night I listen carefully
But there is no message from me
No message from me

[Chorus:]
Sparkling day [x2]
Things I never said
Some things you never heard
Sparkling day [x2]
Now I wait in vain to see
That there was no message from me
