Hourglass Of Life
Words and Music by Kenneth Francis Flaherty “BMI” and Richard Melvin Brown “SOCAN”
Verse 1
A C#m/G# bass G D
I think about the time gone by and where my life has gone,
A C#m/G# bass F#m
And where it is and where its gonna go.
D C#m F#m A/E bass D A F#7
I ponder on a time when life seemed simple all along,
Bsus Bm E7 A Asus A
And I wonder what had happened to that though.
Verse 2
A C#m/G# bass G D
I see some friends who fall away like thirsty leaves of fall;
A C#m/G# bass F#m
They are swept away in memories of mind.
D C#m F#m A/E bass D A F#7
I am growing higher like a tree and trying to grow tall,
Bsus Bm E7 A Asus A
But some thoughts I think have kept me back behind.
Chorus
D A E7 A C#m Em9 D
I think I’ve thought about this thought about a thousand times,
Bm E7 G C#7 F#m
And each time I think about it I just weep.
Bm G C#7 F#m D
This thought of mine is out of line with what my hurt heart needs:
G F#m A/E bass E7 A Asus A
I’m a grain of sand in this hourglass of life.
Verse 3
A C#m/G# bass G D
I feel my soul expanding as my body slows its pace;
A C#m/G# bass F#m
A few more breaths are all that’s left to love.
D C#m F#m A/E bass D A F#7
It’s breaking out to fill the sky and hold the hand of space,
Bsus Bm E7 A Asus A
And it will fill the heart of God who’s up above.
REPEAT Chorus and Tag
TAG:
Bm A/C# bass D E7 A Asus A
I’m just a grain of sand in this hourglass of life.
