Greensboro Ln. — Sinking Sand lyrics

Alone on a stranded isle of thought
Observing from afar I saw
The waves, they crash against the shore
Day after day
Trapped in between the sea and land
Buried beneath the sinking sand
An ocean's tide will carry me
Far away
Far away
Chorus:
As time is slipping through my hands
There's something I can't see
I watch the falling grains of sand
Why are they leaving me
As the tide rolls out
A thousand ships they pass me by
Their billowed sails against the sky
They come and go and yet
They still don't hear my call
As shadows flicker in the fire
The smoke and flames keep rising higher
It overcomes me and I dream
Dream and pray
Dream and pray
Chorus:
As time is slipping through my hands
There's something I can't see
I watch the falling grains of sand
Why are they leaving me
As the tide rolls out
And I wonder where the time left me behind
So on this stranded isle I'll stay
With no one here I can recall
And watch my life slippin' away
I'm left alone to face it all
As the sun goes down
