Sandcastles - Lyrics

Yet I stand, like an hour glass I swift through time
Strand by strand try to find a way to just get by
I long to run, escape the grind
This quicksand has got me reaching for the line
So take my hand, take my life
Don't tell me it's better on the other side

cause we build up our lost dreams
As we etched them into life
Its as fragile as it seems
Like sandcastles against the tide
Like sandcastles against the tide
Like sandcastles

Keep awake, from the moments that I can't rewind
Day by day searching for a little peace of mind
I long to run, escape the ground
This quicksand has got me reaching for the line
So take my hand, take my life
Don't tell me it's better on the other side

cause we build up our last dreams
As we etched them into life
Its as fragile as it seems
Like sandcastles against the tide
Like sandcastles against the tide

cause we build up our last dreams
As we etched them into life
Its as fragile as it seems
Like sandcastles against the tide
