Where the memories lie

In the dark of the night, when the world is asleep
And there’s no sound at all, just the thoughts that you keep
Does your mind ever wander, your thoughts ever stray
To days long ago, to a time far away?
Where the shifting sands wait, in shadows of blue
To lure the unwary, it is waiting for you
The past is illusion, a place of your dreams
Where nothing is ever the way that it seems
For the world of tomorrow will fade in a sigh
When you let yourself dwell where the memories lie
Take care, dreaming traveller, watch where you go
The more you remember, the less that you know
      Your world of tomorrow will fade in a sigh
      Leaving nothing but sand, where the memories lie
