POCKETFUL OF SAND

See the light I can see

Be the one I can’t be

Hold it all in your dreams

And keep it safe

 

I still remember the day

You’d light the sky night or day

And I believed what you’d say

And keep it safe

 

So was this love or another guise for everybody

 

You carry your pocketful of sand

Hold it tight and not slip through your hand

Half for now and half for later

Remind yourself of what you gave up

You carry your pocketful of sand

Reach inside and hold out your hand

Feel it fall through your fingers

A waterfall of sweet reminders

 

See the light I can see

And all the space in between

Hold it close in your dreams

And keep it safe

 

So was this love or another guise for everybody

 

You carry your pocketful of sand

Hold it tight and not slip through your hand

Half for now and half for later

Remind yourself of what you gave up

You carry your pocketful of sand

Reach inside and hold out your hand

Feel it fall through your fingers

A waterfall of sweet reminders

 

You carry your pocketful of sand

Hold it tight and not slip through your hand

Now feel it fall through your fingers

A waterfall of sweet reminders
