Queen - Hourglass

The metronome
Of rain on the rooftop
Velvet draped across the floor, mmh

Was a time when we measured
But never up to our fathers
The sorrow cuts
And as I stare at the blade
You've reached the dark we fear

Locked
Stitches in time
Nothing can break apart our seams

You were humble and kind
Pondering times
As I sit in a shrine
Never meant to be

Rebuilding a passion that never saw a highway
How many more miles would you bare my friend?
Like a jab to the throat
Surrealism silenced the voice
But what is left to say?

And all I can think is thank you for your time
As I reflect with pain

Locked
Stitches in time
Nothing can break apart our seams

You were humble and kind
Pondering times
As I sit in a shrine
Never meant to be

Spiraling the hourglass…

You have loved
You have seen
Through the darkest nights that steal your dreams
You have gone
Slipped away
Only time will help to ease the pain

Spiraling the hourglass
