Like Sands of Time

Like sands of time, drifting away
To memories of a forgotten day
When dreams were real and all was right
That day’s long gone now, faded to night

I remember a child once, head in the sky
Never could worry quell his joy
I remember that child now, stronger than I
For once was I that little boy

All that I wanted is now lost on the breeze
Why did I lose all I had yet to gain?
I knew I’d have it all, yet with terrible ease
My ambitions were the first lost to pain

Like sands of time, drifting away
To memories of a forgotten day
We had dreams once, but the world stepped in
We began to believe that hope was a sin

Life passed me by and did me such wrong
This wasn’t the way it was supposed to be
How could I ever just carry on?
I wanted my dreams back, I wanted to see

Light up ahead, but what was it for?
What I had left was all I could bring
Seeking the future, I got up once more
Living is a very difficult thing

Like sands of time, drifting away
To memories of a forgotten day
We had to start over, to forge a new vision
Buried in the past, we knew not our mission

The world lies before me
To continue the story
The old dreams are gone
But I’ll carry on
I’ll make a new dream
And I’ll believe

Like sands of time, drifting away
To memories of a forgotten day
Our dreams will return, I don’t know when
But tomorrow’s coming, and we can try again
