about

A "Hauntingly beautiful" song, elegant in the classic sense. This simple gem sings to the greater meaning of life. Singer Songwriter Colette O'Connor weaves lovely acoustic finger style purity, her strong clear alto voice, and deeply philosophical lyrics, into a very moving, even enlightening, piece of music.

lyrics

Writing in the sand does not remain for the wind and water wash the thoughts away. It's a long way from where we've been, to say goodbye not knowing if we'll meet again. But life can not be broken as it spreads it's wings to take off into flight. It brings an understanding that nothing's gained, and nothing's lost. We all pay just what we've cost, as we turn in to time. Days turn into years then into lives, and memories do fade into an age that starts again, where everything's the same until the day everything has changed to take you back and start again. For life can not be broken, as it circles into spirals taking flight. It brings and understanding, that when we start to rise anew, it won't erase what we've held true as we turn in to time. For life can not be broken as it circles into spirals taking flight. It brings and understanding, that when we start to rise anew, it won't erase what we held true, as we turn in to time. Writing in the sand does not remain because the hand of time is moving every grain.
