Lyrics from The Absolution —Hands of the Clock

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Absolution - Into The Light

Hands of the Clock

Nick Stewart has written a few songs that aren't tales of seduction, (okay maybe three) and this is a song about mortality and does contain the immortal lines, "Sands in the hour glass, fall like tears, of forlorned love."

 

For the Wicked - The Absolution

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hands of the Clock

 

VERSE - A/E/B/C/F/E/B/C/
Once I tried to forget.
Now, it’s a struggle,
To only remember names,
Of those I love.

 

CHORUS A/ECBCB
Hands of the clock keep turning
Hands of the clock keep spinning
Hands of the clock keep turning
Try to take my time.


Lines begin to appear,
Creases form,
I have to face my fears,
The days grow long.

 

Hands of the clock keep turning
Hands of the clock keep spinning
Hands of the clock keep turning
Try to take my time.


Hear the tick, tick, tick
The seconds sweep
Like sands in the hourglass fall
Like forelorned tears


Hands of the clock keep turning
Hands of the clock keep spinning
Hands of the clock keep turning
Try to take my time.
