I'm trapped in an hourglass
Hands pressed on the walls
I've got sand filling to the neck
How much longer can I fall?

Every grain is another day
Every day becomes another waste
I'll never find my way
I'm numb to the taste

Do you remember all the days when you still knew my face
Oh God, what I'd give to, to go back to that place
Here we stand separated
You're better off alone
Can't go back to the places
I'm looking back just like a ghost
How did you slip away so far, so fast
Can I break this hourglass? Can I break this?

I've got a sickness that I can't seem to shake
And I know that you hold the cure
One choice remains

Every grain is another day
Every day becomes another waste
Maybe I'll never find my way
I'm numb to the taste

Do you remember all the days when you still knew my face
Oh God, what I'd give to, to go back to that place
Here we stand separated
You're better off alone
Can't go back to the places
I'm looking back just like a ghost
How did you slip away so far, so fast
Can I break this hourglass? Can I break this?

Please help me, me empty the hourglass
Give me more time
And I swear I'll find a way back to the body, to the body that was mine

Please help me, me empty the hourglass
Give me more time
And I swear I'll find a way back to the body, to the body that was mine
