Silver Skates of Time

Do you hear it whispering by?
The silver skates of time,
Swishing, creaking, hushed like sighs,
Like the wind, but it never waves goodbye.

This world is a seed,
And it’s desp’rate with need,
But if we die before relief,
Do we really think we’re beat?
God Almighty is no thief,
No, He weeps when we feel grief,
Restores what’s stolen in the scream,
Lets us dream,
Helps us dream.

Do you hear it whispering by?
The silver skates of time,
Swishing, creaking, hushed like sighs,
Like the wind, but it never says goodbye.

Pirouette where you stand,
It might buffet you so bad,
But the wind goes where it’s had,
And a tree without skin couldn’t stand.
So be glad, get out your wizard hat,
Enjoy the road on the Way to your Dad,
When the leaves all fall to make winter a mat,
Remember everything that’s promised; you don’t lack.
In springtime, we’ll see leaves grow back.
In springtime, we’ll see leaves grow back.

Do you hear it whispering by?
The silver skates of time,
Swishing, creaking, hushed like sighs,
Like the wind, but it never waves goodbye.

This is hope,
Honest, a rope,
Pulls us like a tug boat,
Along this stormy road,
Hold it tight, don’t let go,
Belief is what makes us grow,
Can’t climb without somewhere to go,
Just don’t let go,
Just don’t let go.

Do you hear it whispering by?
The silver skates of time,
Swishing, creaking, hushed like sighs,
Like the wind, but it never waves goodbye.

Hush hush,
Hush hush,
Hush hush,
Hush…

Do you hear whispering time?
Sterling silver skates hissing by,
Swishing, creaking, curling through the sky,
This is a wind that never says goodbye.

Hush hush,
Hush…
