I sat alone in the emptiness
Watching the storm passing by
Dreams of a river were haunting me
I was tossed like a leaf on the tide

Onto the sea, along for the ride
Lost in a dream, vertigo rising
She’s all I can see run through my mind
And she turns back the hands of time

She lives in my island of solitude
And carries me into the light
I’m drawn to her depth and her altitude
I’m warmed by the heat of her fire

And the more that I see, the more I desire
Bourne on the wings to infinite skies
And the world that she brings, revealed in her eyes
Turns back the hands of time

Drifting along sometimes carelessly
Moments escape in the night
Brief fleeting glimpses of clarity
Remind me to take what I can find

I’ve planted the tree, drank from the vine
Harvested the seed, and oh, I’ve tasted the brine
Yet I still believe in the things she’s designed
And she turns back the hands of time
