Castles

 

words and music by

john greene

 

drifting on a silver sea,

we spy a distant shore

we fight to land only to find

we're where we were before

castles in the sand

before a rising tide

building castles in the sand

to save our damaged pride

 

flying high after the storm

has swept them all away

some return and talk to me

no words i hear them say

castles in the sand

before a rising tide

building castles in the sand

to save our damaged pride

 

some people love to talk about

what happens every day

i spend my time down on the beach

trying to drift away

castles in the sand

before a rising tide

building castles in the sand

to save our damaged pride
