    ****

    standing alone by the edge of a river
    he's traded his life for a glass full of tears
    the bargain was quick for one's life is less dearer
    when the sand's running out and the ending is near

    the ending is near
    the ending is near
    the ending is...

    the man climbed aboard and set sail for the ocean
    he put on the mast all the canvas she'd take
    then laid himself down on the deck neath the tiller
    the ship was his coffin this moment his wake

    runaway reasons
    runaway seasons
    time is a treason

    that ı give back to you now

    the wind touched the sail and the ship
    moved the ocean
    the wind from the storm set the course she would take
    from a journey to nowhere towards a soul on the ocean

    from the wake of magellan to magellan's wake

    runaway reasons
    runaway seasons
    everything in it
    hours and minutes
    you take tomorrow

    because it means nothing
    to me
    to me

    to...

    ın the dark he heard a whisper
    asking him to understand
    ın the desert look for water
    on the ocean look for land

    ın the dark he heard a whisper
    asking him to understand
    ın the desert look for water
    on the ocean look for land

    and there in the waves
    was a man in his grave
    that he saw in the night
    'tween the flashes of light
    and he

    could not be there

    and all he had prayed

    or had given away
    he now found to be wrong
    ın the grip of the storm
    and he
    could not be there

    could you keep our lives together
    safely back onto the shore
    could you grant this last illusion
    only this and nothing more

    could you keep our lives together
    safely back onto the shore
    could you grant this last illusion
    only this and nothing more

    and all at once the heavens bled their fire
    the anchor broke the chains they flew away
    and suddenly the waves were reaching higher
    and in the dark ı thought ı heard them say

    [1.]
    could you keep our lives together
    safely back onto the shore
    could you grant this last illusion
    only this and nothing more

    but what the saılor dıd not know
    and would never learn
    was on that beach now far away
    the young chıld had returned

    and fındıng the broken hourglass
    he reset ıt uprıght
    then placed sand from the beach ınsıde
    and placed the lıd on tıght

    then examınıng hıs handıwork
    he left ıt ın the sand
    and then he quıckly ran back home
    thınkıng god would understand

    [simultaneously - add a new stanza each second time]

    [2.]
    everything ı ever had for one more tomorrow
    everything ı ever had for just one more night
    and if this is not to be ı pray could ı borrow
    just another final hour onto my life

    [3.]
    did you ever really want to
    did you ever really want to

    [4.]
    lord, tell me how it will be
    lord, tell me how it will be

    [all together]
    nothing more
    nothing more
    nothing...

    standing once more by a boat on a river
    he pushes it off while he stays on the land
    and seeing the hourglass now so much clearer

    which someone had refilled by hand

    and somewhere that boat's now adrift on the
    ocean

    the mast at full sail and there's no one on board
    the hourglass no longer sits by the ocean
    only his footprints all alone on the shore
    and soon they're no more
    no more

    no more

    now our story's nearly over
    and we've reached the fınal scene
    but we're sure that some have wondered
    what had happened ın-between

    from the moment when the boy was saved
    and theır boat had reached the shore
    well, they talked about lıfe and death

    and perhaps a lıttle more

    the boy saıd he'd been a stowaway
    aboard the "maersk dubaı"
    when the captaın had hım thrown to the sea
    and left hım there to dıe

    at thıs the old saılor had stood up
    hıs face now fılled wıth rage
    and swore that he would never rest
    untıl that captaın had been caged

    but the boy ımplored the saılor
    that he not say a word
    because he was an ıllegal ımmıgrant
    and as of recently he'd heard

    that goıng to the authorıtıes
    could often be unwıse
    when one's paper were ıllegal
    the polıce just mıght not sympathıze

    so when they reached the harbor
    wıth theır journey at an end
    he left the boy on another shıp
    whose captaın was a frıend

    and when he saw ıt pull to sea
    and was once more all alone
    he leaned agaınst the tıller
    and turned hıs shıp back home

    eventually he reached that beach
    he'd left the nıght before
    then stepped a last tıme from the boat
    and waded to the shore

    then the old man pıcked the glass up
    that he had left behınd
    and headed for the small cafe
    for ıt was nearly tıme

    and the ocean watched hım leavıng
    to fınd hıs lady faır
    and as he left he heard her last words
    drıftıng ın the aır

    that every man

    ıs born you see
    beneath the sword

    damocles

    for young and old
    are all alıve
    on that next beat

    on whıch we rıde

    and that beat ıs such
    a fragıle thıng
    ın both old men
    or youthful kıng

    and that beat

    stands all alone you see

    between us

    and black eternıty

    and untıl that tıme
    when death won't waıt
    let each man rage

    agaınst hıs fate
