  • I'm wondering why your face no longer shines,
    I'm wondering why your face no longer shines.
    I'm wondering why You're always on my mind.
    I'm still wondering
    Give me a little more time.
    I need to know why I can't see your tears,
    I need to know why I can't see your tears.
    I need to know how many lonesome years
    I want to make you cast away your fears. Writer/s: ANDREW POWELL, DAVID ALAN TURNER, MARTIN ROBERT TURNER, STEVE UPTON
