Let me tell you about time darling,
It’s not real
Because when you want to see somebody
Again you just have to be quiet for a while
And close your eyes.
She said that the grains of sand shouldn’t fall
Like that, in a stupid line,
No grains of sand would float
Because gravity just has to do
With our feet not time,
That’s when I look at my feet,
And notice my shoe lace is untied.
She ties it and keeps saying
So when you miss something
You ask your thoughts politely
And they’ll take you by the hand
Leading you back,
She starts pulling me away and it hurts
It hurts because I’m going to see them again
But darling you mustn’t fall in love with grains
Of sand because they are just that.
They fall into the sea eventually,
Don’t let the shadows of time lure you back
Just tuck the grains in your pocket
Shatter the looking glass
Because darling time isn’t real,
We just have to pick up the fragments,
She gives me Elmer’s glue.
