Castles Made Of Sand
Hey, hey, hey, yeah
Down the street you can hear her scream,
"You're a disgrace"
As she slams the door in his drunken face
And now he stands outside
And all the neighbours start to gossip and drool

And he cries "Oh girl ya must be mad...
What happened to the sweet love that you and me had?"
Against his fence he leans he starts a scene
And tears fall and burn his garden green

And so castles made of sand
Fall into the sea
Eventually, yeah

There was a young brave who before he was ten
Played war games in the woods with his Indian friends
And he built a dream that when he grew up
He would be a fearless warrior Indian Chief

Many moons passed and his dream grew strong
'Til tomorrow he would sing his first war song
And fight his first battle, but something went wrong
A surprise attack killed him in his sleep that night, hey yeah

And so castles made of sand
Fall into the sea
Eventually, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

There was a girl who heart was a frown
'Cause she was crippled for life
And she couldn't speak a sound
And she wished and prayed to stop living
So she decided to die

She drove her wheelchair to the edge of the shore
And to her legs she smiled
"You won't hurt me no more"
But just then a sight she'd never seen before
A golden winged ship is passing my way
And it didn't have to stop, baby
It just kept on going

And so castles made of sand
Fall into the sea
Eventually
And so castles made of sand
Fall into the sea
Eventually, yeah, yeah, yeah
And so castles made of sand
Fall into the sea
Eventually, eventually, yeah x7
They fall away, baby yeah
Hey...
And ya can't hold on, can't hold on, fall away...hey...
