The sands of time low against the window - sill - ouette of a mountain losing it shape
man stands still his mouth agape
trapped inside the house he's built
watching the sun caused the old lilies to wilt

I will get by
as the Sands of time slide
through and hourglass down the mountainside
time always slides on by

I spread my arms wide open
as if I'll take to the sky
. My mind is like a bird
is in a cage ready to fly
locked inside his head of mine
know I will be a queen
as I am so inclined

you been by my side but probably too long
So I spread my wings now and yes I carry on

I will get by
as the sands of time slide
when our glass down the mountainside
time always slides on by

a bird let out of its cage
flying high to touch the sun
will child little child life is just begun
you will get by

I will get by
the Sands of Time slide through an hourglass down the mountainside
I'm always slides on by
