Jersey – Hourglass lyrics

The hourglass is slipping, slipping away
She knows the clock is ticking and she knows her number is coming up
She can't shake this feeling it won't go away
And inside she's screaming and she knows the angels are coming soon

And she knows the angels are coming soon

And she tries and she lies, says she's ok
Always thinking of others first
And never cries and she tries to put things off
She's still smiling, and lives for the day

And when people see her. They just look away.
They think she's just a dreamer
Cause they don't know what she's going through
She doesn't accept the sentence she battles it out
And in her mind she fights it
And then she falls asleep and thinks of her boys

And she falls asleep and thinks of her boys


Lives for the day
