Hourglass

Lyrics

You remind me of someone I saw
In a half-forgotten dream
Faded details I cannot recall,
From a distant memory

Quickly now, lest we run out of time
And we slip back through the sands
I’ll be yours and I hope you’ll be mine
So won’t you please take my hand?

In a quiet room at the edge of twilight
I met with a stranger in the fading light
Around and around we danced all through the night
But they never did call me by name

As the night came to an end and we said our goodbyes
“You seem so familiar, though I couldn’t guess why”
And try as I might I could not meet those eyes
When they asked if they’d see me again

You remind me of someone I know
In a long-lost fantasy
Broken fragments I cannot let go
From a distant memory

Quickly now, lest we run out of time
And we slip back through the sands
I’ll be yours and I hope you’ll be mine
So won’t you please take my hand?

Oh, the knife that divides us is wicked and sharp
Each evening together, by morning apart
But I gave you my vows as I gave you my heart
Regardless of future or past

I’ll stay by your side, yes it’s you I adore
And we’ve shared this music together before
But I’ll dance with you here for a thousand times more
Each time both our first and our last

You remind me of someone I saw
In a half-forgotten dream
Faded details I cannot recall,
From a distant memory

Quickly now, ‘fore we run out of time
And we slip back through the sands
I am yours and you’ll always be mine
So won’t you please take my hand?

Notes

A song about destined lovers, where one is cursed to lose all memories of the other every day.
