"Sparkle" was written for the Push and Shove album.

"Sparkle"is a leftover track from Gwen Stefani's The Sweet Escape recording session, co-written by the Eurythmic's Dave Stewart. Tom confirms that though it was taken from the solo phase, the recording has been redone "ND style". Stewart confirmed that the version appearing on Push and Shove sounds totally different than the original solo take.

Not much is known about this so-called reggae song that features another "killer" trombone solo. "Sparkle" has been described as "stoney" by Tom Dumont. Fans got their first taste of this heavy, dubby-reggae song during the band's second webisode.

There has been buzz in the fan community that "Sparkle"'s lyrics speak on Gwen's relationship with brother and ex-No Doubt founder, Eric Stefani.

Lyrics Edit

Never ever, ever gonna be the same
Never gonna be the same
Never ever, ever gonna be the same
Never gonna be the same

It’s nothing new
You’ve gone missing before
People like you fade in out
Somehow we got lost in the travels
Why did the world unravel us?
And how it was?

Sometimes I feel like I just passed you by
And left you standing in your pain
But you were the one with the magic
You were the one with the sparkle
And you had it all

I know it’s never gonna be the way it was
How can it?
Feelings change and people can get lost
But I still think of you so much
Do you remember how it was?

Never ever, ever gonna be the same
Never gonna be the same

So whatcha doing while the day goes by?
And whatcha thinking in your head?
I just want you to be happy
Please let me know if you are
The way you were

I know it’s never gonna be the way it was
How can it?
Feelings change and people can get lost
But I still think of you so much
Do you remember how it was?

Never ever, ever gonna be the same
Never gonna be the same

I know it’s never gonna be the way it was
How can it?
Feelings change and people can get lost
But I still think of you so much
Do you remember how it was?

Never gonna be the way it was
How can it?
Feelings change and people can get lost
But I still care about you so much
Do you remember how it was?

I still care about you so much…
