"Hourglass" as written by Glenn Martin Tilbrook and Christopher Henry Difford....
I feel like I'm pounding on a big door
No one can hear me knocking,
I feel like I'm falling flat to the floor
No one can catch me from falling
The hourglass has no more grains of sand,
My watch has stopped no more turning hands
The crew have abandoned ship
The lights are on but now one is in

Takeittothebridge throwitoverboard
Seeifitcanswim backuptotheshore
Noonesinthehouse allthelightsareon
Andtheblindsaredown

Takeittothebridge throwitoverboard
Seeifitcanswim backuptotheshore
Noonesinthehouse everyoneisout
Allthelightsareon andtheblindsaredown

I feel like I'm calling on a telephone
No one can hear the ringing,
I feel like I'm running up a steep hill
No one can stop me from running
The hourglass has no more grains of sand
My watch has stopped no more turning hands
The little hand shakes it's fist
The face is hanging out on a spring

Takeittothebridge throwitoverboard
Seeifitcanswim backuptotheshore
Noonesinthehouse everyoneisout
Allthelightsareon andtheblindsaredown

Takeittothebridge throwitoverboard
Seeifitcanswim backuptotheshore
Noonesinthehouse everyoneisout
Allthelightsareon andtheblindsaredown

Takeittothebridge throwitoverboard
Seeifitcanswim backuptotheshore
Noonesinthehouse everyoneisout
Allthelightsareon andtheblindsaredown

Takeittothebridge throwitoverboard
Seeifitcanswim backuptotheshore
Noonesinthehouse everyoneisout
Allthelightsareon andtheblindsaredown

The hourglass has no more grains of sand,
Little red grains of sand
My watch has stopped now more turning hands
Little green neon hands

Takeittothebridge throwitoverboard
Seeifitcanswim backuptotheshore
Noonesinthehouse everyoneisout
Allthelightsareonandtheblindsaredown

Takeittothebridge throwitoverboard
Seeifitcanswim backuptotheshore
Noonesinthehouse everyoneisout
Allthelightsareonandtheblindsaredown

I feel like I'm calling back to the shore
No one can hear me calling
I feel like I'm falling flat to the floor
No one can catch me from falling
