Shaking the sands of time © (Lyrics)

As I walk along the beach

Another world sits out of reach

I begin to reminisce

Things that have been and I miss

.

The hourglass counts

Every grain that’s passed

To a mountain of youth

That’s already been used

I’m feeling the tide of the sea

Crashing around at my feet

Shaking the sands of time

A million moments in my life

So many memories survive

– But yours I hold most tight

.

Childhood flickers like a bulb

Scenes from so long ago

Hypnotised by the screen

When family meant everything to me

.

I started to grow up

That’s when love woke up

And mistakes easily cut

Everything fragile underfoot

I’m feeling the tide of the sea

Crashing around at my feet

Shaking the sands of time

A million moments in my life

So many memories survive

– But yours I hold most tight

(When the work is not viewed and shared, the artist loses hope, and the birth of new art ceases to be imagined)
