The Sands of Time

This song was created for Game of Bands round 208 : "Desert"

Lyrics:

Verse 1
I’ve been running a mile in your shoes
Clear your mind before you lose
Feel the heat as the rain pours down

Signs of life are missing here
The quiet life, a life of fear
A mirage of our love burnt to the ground

Prechorus
So we stand facing despair
Our past and future still not clear
Shadows lost from this landscape we are in

I blink and miss the passing time
Your face blurs into mine
The wind blows away the path and hides where we’ve been

Chorus
Stranded here next to you
See our life’s just passing through
This desert in my mind
Is burning through me
Take it to me
Feel it pull me
Away from this time
Away from this life
Away from me tonight

Verse 2
Standing in a crowd alone,
This place is overthrown
A part of me is still and lonely

Sending the sands of time away
All I have left is to just pray
Your just a memory that’s slowly fading

Prechorus
So we stand facing despair
Our past and future still not clear
Shadows lost from this landscape we are in

I blink and miss the passing time
Your face blurs into mine
The wind blows away the path and hides where we’ve been

Chorus (x2)
Stranded here next to you
See our life’s just passing through
This desert in my mind
Is burning through me
Take it to me
Feel it pull me
Away from this time
Away from this life
Away from me tonight
[Exit]
