A Thousand Yards

from by The Velvet Ants

lyrics

Over and over shining seas in flight
In keeping a promise never told
I walked with my brother in the mind's fading light
And carry him back to our home

No one can fight sand
All it has is time
These haunted memories
Of what's left behind

A whisper's like thunder when it hurts to think
I push stone uphill far too steep
I search for some cover but it's gone in a blink
Life's but a dream, I can't sleep

No one can fight sand
All it has is time
These haunted memories
Of what's left behind

(break)

No one can fight sand (There's still some memory)
All it has is time (It's now my enemy)
These haunted memories (There's still some memory)
Of what's left behind (It's now my enemy)

I don't wanna feed your anger (There's still some memory)
I just wanna be your pride (It's now my enemy)
A thousand yards feels like forever (There's still some memory)
A precious heartbeat by my side
