Hands Like Houses Oceandust Lyrics

There's no more wind to be found in the sails
Hands full of fallen stars and comet tails
Rivers of sand unentwine through my hands
To know what they've seen, well, my burdens 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 want to 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

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 want to know that I'm steady on my feet
I don't want to pretend, so peace will be real to me

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