From the recording Castles in the Sand

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
