VERSE 1
We never did say goodbye
That’s what haunted me
When I heard the news
That dropped me to my knees
No time to say goodbye
That’s no way for love to end
But an unexpected tragedy
Mixed your ashes with the wind

CHORUS 1
Where are we to go
When it’s time that we’re called home?
And how am I to know
I’ll find someone like you to hold?
So, how am I to keep my faith
When a heart that once was mine
Lies beyond the hills we climbed
Across the sands of time?

VERSE 2
Some say we are ghosts
Just waiting to appear
But how do ghosts feel the sun
Or smell the rain when it is near?
I believe we’re flames
That can merge to light our way
As we stroll breathing shorelines
And dance above the waves

BRIDGE
Where every grain of sand
Can hold a memory
Of every prayer we prayed
And every dream we dreamed
Where’s the bridge to cross
That’ll take me further home
Closer to the arms
That I yearn to hold?

CHORUS 2
Just like drifting clouds
We split and fade away
Till autumn winds draw us back
To squeeze us tight and make us rain
And when the harvest bells fill the air
And ring out one last time
Oh, that’s when our hearts combine
That’s when hearts combine
When your hand’s holding mine
And we cross the sands of time
And we cross the sands of time
And we cross the sands of time
