    Looking through some photographs I found inside a drawer
    I was taken by a photograph of you
    There were one or two I know that you would have liked a little more
    But they didn't show your spirit quite as true
    You were turning 'round to see who was behind you
    And I took your childish laughter by surprise
    And at the moment that my camera happened to find you
    There was just a trace of sorrow in your eyes

    Now the things that I remember seem so distant and so small
    Though it hasn't really been that long a time
    What I was seeing wasn't what was happening at all
    Although for a while our path did seem to climb
    When you see through love's illusions, there lies the danger
    And your perfect lover just looks like a perfect fool
    So you go running off in search of a perfect stranger
    While the loneliness seems to spring from your life
    Like a fountain from a pool

    Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
    You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
    You've had to hide sometimes, but now you're all right
    And it's good to see your smiling face tonight

    Now for you and me it may not be that hard to reach our dreams
    But that magic feeling never seems to last
    And all the future's there for anyone to change, still you know it seems
    It would be easier sometimes to change the past
    I'm just one or two years and a couple of changes behind you
    In my lessons of love's pain and heartache school
    Where if you feel too free and you need something to remind you
    There's this loneliness springing up from your life
    Like a fountain from a pool

    Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
    You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
    You've had to hide sometimes but now you're all right
    And it's good to see your smiling face tonight

    Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
    You've known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
    You've had to struggle, you've had to fight
    To keep understanding and compassion in sight
    You could be laughing at me, you've got the right
    But you go on smiling so clear and so bright
