Album: No More Beautiful World (2007)
  • Momentito, why don't you stay
    Bright little bird don't fly away so fast
    Turn the hourglass over

    I ask not for a century
    No eon or immortality
    Turn the hourglass over?

    Row, row, row your boat
    Gently down the stream
    When will this current find the ocean?
    Where will this river meet the sea?
    And I don't know why we float
    But I like this buoyancy
    Each moment lent, I already spent now
    My favorite currency

    Turn the hourglass over
    Turn the hourglass over again

    Sand is rushing through the glass
    So busy turning now into the past so fast
    Turn the hourglass over

    As I step out upon the plain
    Why must the horses run away again
    Turn the hourglass over

    Turn the hourglass over
    Turn the hourglass over again

    As darkness whispers in our ear
    Let we loiter in the light a little longer here
    Turn the hourglass over
