Story Behind the Song

This song was inspired by a dream I had. I combined that experience with the loss of family members and friends who went suddenly. Some were expected because of terminal illnesses, but still the moments we are informed of their departures....we face suspended disbelief as we grapple with the event. I spent 7-8 months on this song letting it slowly define the concept and the vivid, yet subtle lyrics and the haunting and dynamic melody because I didn't want the song to be trite, sappy or shallow. I hope you enjoy it and share it with others.

VERSE 1
We never said goodbye
That's what came to me
The moment that I heard
You had sailed for endless seas
There was no goodbye
Would that be our end?
When a sudden cosmic circumstance
Mixed your ashes with the wind

CHORUS 1
Where are we to go
When it's time that we're called home?
And how are we to know
Without the love we need to hold?
How am I to keep my faith
Without that heart of mine
Beyond the hills we've climb
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 merge to light the way
As we stroll breathing shorelines
And dance above the waves

BRIDGE
Every grain of sand
Holds a memory
Of every prayer we've prayer
And every dream we've dreamed
Every bridge I cross
Takes me further home
Closer to the arms
That I yearn to hold

CHORUS 2
Just like drifting clouds
We split and drift 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
That's when 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
