Lyrics

Two weeks away feels like the whole world should have changed
But I’m now, and things still look the same
I think I’ll leave it till tomorrow to unpack, try to forget for one more night
That I’m back in my flat
On the road where the cars never stop going through the night
To a life where I can’t watch the sun set, I don’t have time, I don’t have time

I’ve still got sand in my shoes and I can’t shake the thought of you
I should get on, forget you but why would I want to
I know we said goodbye, anything else would have been confused
But I want to see you again

Tomorrow’s back to work and down to sanity
Should run a bath and then clear up the mess I made before I left here
Try to remind myself that I was happy here before I knew that I could get
On a plane and fly away
From the road where the cars never stop going through the night
To a life where I can watch the sun set and take my time, take all our time

I’ve still got sand In my shoes and I can’t shake the thought of you
I should get on, forget you but why would I want to
I know we said goodbye, anything else would have been confused
But I want to see you again

Two weeks away, all it takes, to change and turn me around I’ve fallen
I walked away, and never said, that I wanted to see you again

I’ve still got sand…
