lyrics

Like Sand

At the start it feels like forever
No end to the road that we're on
Limitless to the horizon
Carrying on and on

But there in the background is ticking
Counting down one by one
We're only aware of the ticking
At the going down of the sun

Time is never for wasting
As precious as gold in our hands
Time is never for wasting
Yet it slips through our fingers like sand

An old head on young shoulders
Would that that wish could come true
But time has passed and I'm older
There's not too much more I can do

In the background now I can hear ticking
I count down with it one by one
Now I'm sorely aware of the ticking
And I look to the West for the sun

Time is never for wasting
As precious as gold in our hands
Time is never for wasting
Yet it slips through our fingers like sand
