The sand surrounding my feet, drifting in the wind
Looking on the ocean as the waves roll by
The same now as before, over and over again
Meaning washed away with the hands of time

Always the same...
Always the same...

I miss the sight of the faces I know
Their voices are the sounds that I cannot let go
So far away that silence is all that I feel
I hear them now, the sound is so perfectly clear

My thoughts everywhere but here
Distant from where I am
The path I follow now, I've already seen
The same now as before, over and over again
Meaning washed away with the hands of time

These will not become memories
They will not be all familiar to me
These will not become memories
Because they are everything to me
Always the same...

I miss the sight of the faces I know
Their voices are the sounds that I cannot let go
So far away that silence is all that I feel
I hear them now, the sound is so perfectly clear

    General CommentI think it's about people he lost or somethings thats just not in his life anymore, or maybe even just the life he used to have, is gone, and now it's just something totally different, more dull and "always the same". i guess he feels out of place now? wants to go back to how things were.
