"Sand" as written by Nancy Lamoureaux Wilson, Ann Wilson, Susan Ennis and Frank R. Cox....
I asked a distant star
I wonder where you are
The shadow at my door
A friend who is no more
I watched him go to the wind
I close my eyes
Goodbye, goodbye my friend

Friends and family
The branches of the tree
Sheltered in the rain
Telling me again
No matter how raindrops run
World will turn
Turn back to the sun
Yeah, yeah

A trick of light upon our eyes
A trick of time upon our lives
Ancient songs cry out to you
Surely this sweet sand is slipping through

I watched him go to the wind
I close my eyes
Goodbye, goodbye my friend yeah

A trick of light upon our eyes
A trick of time upon our lives
Ancient songs cry out to you
And surely this sweet sand is slipping through
Slipping through the glass of time
Surely this sweet sand will run on by and by
And while the days come down to you
You are just a traveler passing through, yeah
Yeah

    General CommentA beautiful song. The lyrics reflect on the truth of our existence, the passage of time, the coming and passing of all we experience, the passage of those we love and know. Taken on face value this might be a cause of sadness but the melody in which the words are set in a melody which is bright and optimistic, yet not overstated. It has a hint of regret but also one of thanks for what was.....goodbye, goodbye, my friend, keeps the value of the friendship/love even where it's lost. In a world where everything passes the only thing real is love for those who share it.
