A NOTE FROM SARAH: "I wrote "Piece of Time" when I was in prison. The last time I saw Shane and Josh they asked me to use my music to raise support for them and get them out of prison. Every second for the last 2+ months since my release I've been fighting alongside the families and countless others around the world solely for this end. I hope the song and video can bring people closer to our story and give you a glimpse of who Shane, Josh are, why their detention is so completely unjust and why their freedom is so tremendously important to fight for."

We walked across hard land
Into a human trap
They took us for one long ride
You're now in Iran, Iran
You with your burnt green eyes
Haven't you said to me?
All they can take from us
Is a piece of time.
You're an American,
What were you doing there?
The truth doesn't matter much
in this political game.
Now inside these four stone walls
All I can think of is you
Put on my black blindfold
Go for a walk outside
The women all know my name
They whisper as they walk by
"Saw your Mom on BBC
Don't worry you'll soon be free."
When I get out of this
I'll never lock anything inside
take all my friends for a walk
Down by the oceanside.
