BENI - "sands of time"

kaiwa ga togirete
miageta kanata no
yuugure no sora wa
anata no me ni dou utsuru no
owari no iro hajimaru iro

deatta koro nara
hanarete ita tte
furete ita hazu no
anata no kokoro ima wa tookute
futari ashita sagasenai

jikan no kakera ga koboreochite yuku
tsunaideta te no hira kara
tomerarenai no ni
owari wa kuru no ni
konna ni mo aishite ita
kirameita omoide wa
nido to modoranai Sands of time

hito wa ne dare demo
kawatte yuku kara
nagai yakusoku wa
imi ga nai to wakatteru no
shibaru hodo ni uso ni naru

anata ga miotosu
watashi no samishisa
kitto onaji you
anata no nanika miotoshite iru
sonna watashi ga kanashii

jikan no kakera ga koboreochite yuku
dakishimeta mune no sukima
kagiri ga aru no ni
konna hi ga kuru no ni
eien wo shinjite ita
ushinatta itoshisa wa
nido to modoranai Sands of time

ikura modoritakute mo
yarinaoshitakute mo
kaeritai ano hi wa
kaze ni mai toozakatte yuku

jikan no kakera ga koboreochite yuku
tsunaideta te no hira kara
tomerarenai no ni
owari wa kuru no ni
konna ni aishite ita

jikan no kakera ga koboreochite yuku
dakishimeta mune no sukima
kagiri ga aru no ni
konna hi ga kuru no ni
eien wo shinjite ita
ushinatta itoshisa wa
nido to modoranai Sands of time

BENI - "sands of time"

When there's a pause in the conversation
And you look at the evening sky in the distance
What does it look like to you?
Is it the color of an ending
Or the color of a beginning?

Even though you
Pulled away when we met
I should have touched your heart
But it's far away now
We can't look for a future together

The sands of time drain away
Even though we can't stop them from
Slipping through the palms of our hands
And though the end is coming
I loved you so much
Those shining memories will never
Come back through the sands of time

Everyone changes
No matter who they are
I know there's no point to long promises
The more they tie you down
The more fake they are

When you fail to notice
How lonely I am
I'm sure I'm just the same
Failing to notice something you're feeling
That part of me makes me sad

The sands of time drain away
Even though there's a limit to
The amount of cracks my heart can hold
And though a day like this is coming
I believed in forever
The love we lost will never
Come back through the sands of time

No matter how much I want
To go back or do it all over
The day I want to go back to
Gets blown by the wind further and further away

The sands of time drain away
Even though we can't stop them from
Slipping through the palms of our hands
And though the end is coming
I loved you so much

The sands of time drain away
Even though there's a limit to
The amount of cracks my heart can hold
And though a day like this is coming
I believed in forever
The love we lost will never
Come back through the sands of time
