lyrics

Something in her voice, something I had thought of as untrue.
Walked towards the unknown, I learnt to follow no one else but me.

She said it’s such a shame and hard to know, a bit like when the Summer ends. She handed over something I had seen before and dearly hoped I’d lost.

Still light on the sand. New song for the band.

I gave my hand slowly. I sensed that something put out would return.
All this time the sorrow had survived and found in my heart it could burn. I said sometimes on this island, a tune is played that fills the empty nests.....
.
But the sand bird calls and rules another day and I am held at its behest.

Still light on the sand. New song for the band.
Instrumental

In days when I was younger, I would see no good in any man.
Shadows at the corners of my room would hide the sunlight until when? I did meet the love that I have known, walking in the month of June. But the sand bird did fly down and take away all but the memory of you.

Still light on the sand. New song for the band. Still light on the sand.
