"'Til The Sun Comes Shining Through" lyrics - STRAWBS

"'Til The Sun Comes Shining Through"

My love is as the rose
As wild and free as I should wish to be
Close guarded by the thorns
That shield her from the hands that seek to touch

The hourglass sand that runs so free
Is rock that failed to halt the waves of time
My haven is the harbour bar
Sheltering from the storm
'Til the sun comes shining through, again

My love a primrose fair
A gentle hedgerow flower in the spring
If gathered in the dawn
Come evening she will surely fade and die

The hourglass sand...

My love is as a pearl
A heart of stone that I can never own
More precious than my life
Thus meaning more than I can ever give

The hourglass sand...
