Story

I read a story once ... a girl and her mother were walking on the beach. The girl asked her mother how to hold on to her true love.  The mother told her to pick up two handfuls of sand, to hold one loosely and to squeeze the other tight.  It is true - if you try too hard to hold the sand, you end up with less.

Lyrics




LOVE IS LIKE SAND

    Love is like time pouring thru the hourglass
    Passin you by when it’s your turn to play
    Love is like sand slipping thru your fingers
    The tighter you grab it the more it slips away

We used to walk in step with each other,
We used to talk so the other could hear
Now we’re walking in two different strides
The distance is so deep and wide
Feels like one of us might disappear

We used to laugh, we used to poke fun
Fun at each other, never seeking to care
Now we’re pointing fingers causing pain
Can we learn to smile again
Do we still have something to share?

    Love is like time pouring thru the hourglass
    Passin you by when it’s your turn to play
    Love is like sand slipping thru your fingers
    The tighter you grab it the more it slips away

We used to have common ground to stand on
Now we’re two islands drifting apart
Have storm winds blown us out of reach
Washed away the sand under our feet
Left us howling in the dark?

    Love is like time pouring thru the hourglass
    Passin you by when it’s your turn to play
    Love is like sand slipping thru your fingers
    The tighter you grab it the more it slips away
