What do you do with the sands of time
When they carve out lines around your eyes
I can close my fists up good and tight 
But I can't hold back the sands of time

What do you do with a memory 
That just hangs around and stares at me
I can tear that frame down off the wall
But it won't erase the things I saw

 Night and day
 Night and day
You remain 
You remain 

What do you do with old regrets 
There's a box full underneath the bed
Just close enough not to forget 
But do what do you do with old regrets 

There's old house key in a kitchen drawer
To the door I can't unlock no more
 Sometimes I hold that key real tight 
But what do you do after goodbye

 Night and day
 Night and day
You remain 
You remain 

 Night and day
 Night and day
You remain 
You remain
