"A Heart Of Glitter And Eyes Of Stone"

She had it all
But not in our time
Another vision
Another mind
There was a glimmer but now it's gone
A heart of glitter and eyes of stone

When the orchestra played that's when the getting was good
When the bells did chime in the place where she stood
The dancers are gone now from her chemistry
Into the town and electricity
A heart of glitter and eyes of stone

It all came down
It came a-crashin'
You took the blow you took the lashing
A tee-vee glowed
Played on and on
A heart of glitter and eyes of stone

The skirts did sway in the old ballroom
Pink and yellow and powder blue moon
Pretty maids all in a row
In her eyes it all turns to stone
A heart of glitter and eyes of stone

Just like the dust
Before the wind
See me here
And gone again
Storefront window, a tee-vee glowed
A heart of glitter and eyes of stone

Like the frost in the summer when the colours did glow
Back in the spring beneath miles of snow
The eyes of the dancers wild and flown
The night is ripped and the stars are torn
A heart of glitter and eyes of stone

A heart of glitter and eyes of stone
A heart of glitter and eyes of stone
