What do you do with the sands of time
When they carve out lines around your eyes
I can close my fists up good and tight
But I can??™t hold back the sands of time
What do you do with a memory
That just hangs around and stares at me
I can tear that frame down off the wall
But it won??™t erase the things I saw
Night and day
Night and day
You remain
You remain
What do you do with old regrets
There??™s a box full underneath the bed
Just close enough not to forget
But do what do you do with old regrets
There??™s old house key in a kitchen drawer
To the door I can??™t unlock no more
Sometimes I hold that key real tight
But what do you do after goodbye
Night and day
Night and day
You remain
You remain
Night and day
Night and day
You remain
You remain
