  • Time traveling, moving at the speed of light
    Moments we are gathering are the key to life
    Your picture in a frame takes me to a place and time
    When I saw the future with your heart in mine's

    And you'll know
    You'll know when I give you everything
    Everything I am
    And we'll go
    We'll go together hand-in-hand
    Slipping through the hourglass home

    I can't help it if I'm wondering
    Is it all just make-belief?
    Everything that we've been through
    Always you and me

    Is it so?
    Is it so, when I ask myself
    Could this be a dream?
    We'll know
    We'll know together hand-in-hand
    Slipping through the hourglass home

    And my love
    It doesn't matter where we are
    I lay down low, for all I am
    Is all we'll be

    You'll know
    Yes, you'll know
    When I give you everything
    Everything I am
    And we'll go
    We'll go together hand-in-hand
    Slipping through the hourglass home

    Together hand-in-hand
    Slipping through the hourglass home Writer/s: JAMES NEWTON HOWARD, JASON WADE, JUDE ANTHONY COLE
