Story

Kind of a more mellow version of the same story that "Dreams Gone By" is based on... that one that got away... Sometimes you work and work at it, and it just isn't meant to be.

 

Lyrics

Hello girl, it’s been such a while

And time has touched your face with a smile

Our lives have pushed us our own ways

But somehow it feels like yesterday

We used to lie awake at night

And fantasize about our lives

 

Remember the trouble that we’d find

Your Daddy’s Ford and his cherry wine

Until the morning we would ride

Then we faced your Daddy side by side

We used to lie awake all night

Your arms around me felt so right

Our faith was young, and full of holes

But the morning sun would warm our souls

 

Oh, you and me built castles in the sand

They’re hard to see

The tide washed away our plans

Well we worked so hard for something

To be taken from our hands

Baby I still see our Castles in the..

Castles in the sand

 

And who’d have known we’d get so close

You hurt the ones you love the most

We worked a lifetime on this love

But the waves came crashing from above

 

Oh, you and me built castles in the sand

They’re hard to see

The tide washed away our plans

Well we worked so hard for something

To be taken from our hands

Baby I still see our Castles in the..

Castles in the sand

 

It’s hard to picture us so young and in command

But I remember this, our innocence and

Castles in the sand

 

Sometimes I think about the things we used to say

Oh girl I promised you that I’d be here

I’d never go away

 

And you and me built castles in the sand

They’re hard to see

The tide washed away our plans

Well we worked so hard for something

To be taken from our hands

Baby I still see our Castles in the..

Castles in the sand
