I saw you on the swings
You were looking at the sky
You turned around and told me
There’s one reason why
You’re the keeper of your dreams
And the dreamer of your sake
What do you dream of when you’re not awake?

I walked with you for hours
You gently held my hand
But our love’s an hourglass
So let love be the sand

Myths and legends stay
But stories fade away
And a story’s what it is
Like what happened yesterday
You said is was O.K. in the meadow
Where we lay
But then you went and cried
When the hour glass went dry

Never said we’d keep in touch
So I guarantee we must
Gather up the day
And let it settle in the dust
Just let one debt be let
You’re a lady and I’m a gent
The different ways we went
Were the different ways we went
