How do I get a twinkle in my eye
There’s so many I have seen still I can’t find mine
After tomorrow’s come and gone
Will I have done anything right
Where do I get a twinkle in my eye?

One was once vouchsafed me from a delusion
An artificial light that passed as real
But the cause had a defect and affected the cause
Another man came my twinkle for to steal

Once I stole the light from a rainstorm
But when on it I looked, oh how it burned
It never was here to stay. It washed away when the sunlight came
Reality is that a twinkle must be earned

Is it always all for nothing
And why does every small word have to rhyme
I would, just once, that life would fade into something
But it never does
