Lyrics
Penny's got a new outlook this year
At least, that's what she'd like to hear
Though I'd beg to differ
Because all is still the same back home

Started with the world on fire last fall
Seems it was the spark of something small
That grew with conviction
A personal mission

And what she wouldn't give
To hold them in her hands
Those seventy-five little grains of sand

April was a night of nothing new
But holding what she thought was true
Dawn, only backwards
A sunset to start her day

And everything she used to choke at school
Swallowing the whole of untold rules
Filled with desire
All set on fire

And what she wouldn't give
To hold them in her hands
Those seventy-five little grains of sand
A glimpse of the now
That would change the then
Those seventy-five little grains of sand

And all is falling quite undone
She's letting go, letting go for what's to come

Hope sometimes can blind the heart
Calling light what breathes like dark
Mistaken provisions
Can lengthen the distance
And shatter our visions
No, no, no

And what we wouldn't give
To hold them in our hands
Those seventy-five little grains of sand
A glimpse of the now
That would change the then
Those seventy-five little grains of sand

Mercy sure thing
The tension is evidence that I'm alive and able to respond
To the movement of Spirit, the good, the terrible
Mercy I cannot see without closing my eyes
Must be a plot
