I know I’m only passing through

There’s no more wind to be found in the sails
Hands full of fallen stars and comet tails

Rivers of sand unentwined through my hands
To know what they’ve seen, well, my burden’s all pale

I’ll make an hourglass from my fingers
I know I’m only passing through

I don’t want to pretend that I’m stronger for it all
I don’t want to pretend that the sadness is gone
‘Cause I wanna know that I’m steady on my feet
I don’t want to pretend so peace will be real to me

There’s no respite to be found in the waves
Each rise and retreat will scrub the blood away

I’ll make an hourglass from my fingers
I know I’m only passing through.
