"Running Through Our Hands" as written by and Peter Constantine/bruce Brown....
Running through our hands
In the waving grass
One harvest time can't stop them now
Cities made of sand
That were built to last
No one man sky to tell them how

Seasons kiss, collide and miss
Stars still turn and sometimes burn
And the stones alone laugh

Passing through our arms
Go each others loves
One woman sea can't break their fall
Blossoms in your gaze,
Storm clouds race above
One season more they've grown so tall

Seasons kiss, collide and miss
Stars still turn and sometimes burn
But the stones alone laugh

    General CommentMost people don't know who Jack Bruce is, and those who do usually only know him as the bassist for Cream. But Jack Bruce has had an AMAZING solo career right through the 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000's. In fact, he's STILL rockin! Check out jackbruce.com

    This track is from his album Out of the Storm (1974). I believe the lyrics were written by his wife, Janet Godfrey. To me, this song is about how nothing seems to endure forever in the face of time. I think of sand falling through an hour glass and running through our hands... time passing... everything around us comes and then goes... people we once loved are now gone... some of them dead... new people come into our lives... jobs come and go... homes come and then go... everything is temporary, except for the stones who seem to laugh at our endless plight...
