"Hourglass" as written by and Leslie Phillips....
[Verse 1:]
I hear a ticking, it keeps on ticking
Though it`s only inside my head
The light is flicking, and hell is kicking
A believer before its dead

[Chorus:]
And I`m looking to the hourglass
That`s running out of sand
I`m looking through the hourglass
Into another land

[Verse 2:]
I hear a crying of people dying
And it`s taking me to the street
Intensifying a self-denying
That bringing will starve defeat

[Repeat Chorus]
[Bridge:]
Time is sifting away so fast
Loving...I`ve got to love what lasts
`Cause where you hide your treasure
You hide your heart
If you hide it in this world
You know it`s gonna fall apart

[Repeat Chorus]
