Dreams Are Like Sand
You threw the curtains open on the morning
The northerly had brought the rain in the night
Our clothes were lying half undressed fallen on the floor.
You looked lovely in the light.
You said did you sleep through the storm, my darling?
Did you sleep through the rain last night?
For I was so full of hopelessness
I couldn’t hear your heart
My dreams are like sand and I can’t hold them
and I’m losing the places I stand
The song I’ve been singing for a lifetime
has words I do not understand, anymore.
I whispered baby come and lie beside me
It’s easy to get shipwrecked in the night
The storm has gone and torn your silver lining.
It’s hard to hold on tight.
You will not drown though the water’s rising
You will not drown though the sky is dark
For though you’re low and lost on the horizon.
I can hear your heart.
When your dreams are like sand and you can’t hold them
and you’re losing the places you stand
The song you’ve been singing for a lifetime
has words that I can understand, more and more.
