Watch my video of this song (wrong speed):


Every day's a pebble lost 
that's never to be found
pebbles from your pocketful
that fall without a sound
yet, somehow they leave a trail
that shows you where you’ve been
look before the leaves cover your footsteps behind you

Catch a pebble as it falls and hold it in your hand
just remember all the world is in a grain of sand,
it's all there, wind, sand and stars, there in your hand
now someone can stumble on your trail of pebbles
shining in the sun, 
gather them like they were jewels and give them all to you
one by one.

Every day's a pebble lost
that's never to be found
pebbles from your pocketful
that fall to earth without
a sound.
