Lyrics

Sandcastles

Written By: Melissa and Keith Webb

The ocean storms or the wind
Can break a fine castle down
And leave it crumbling on the ground
With just a memory of the way it used to be
Left with just a vision and a chance

Two children were building sandcastles
Then the wind came and blew those castles down
One child started to pick up the pieces
The other one sat there and frowned

One child built another castle
That was even higher than before
The other child said "A storm is coming, and
I don't think you should try anymore"

"The ocean storms or the wind
Can break a fine castle down
And leave it crumbling on the ground
I don't think it will last
For the storm is coming fast
I'm through wasting my time here"

A chill filled the air when the night came
As the water rushed in with the tide
And one child was busy digging trenches
He looked up and said with a smile
As the water rushed in with the tide
One child was busy digging trenches
He looked up and said with a smile

"The ocean storms or the wind can break a fine castle down
And leave it crumbling on the ground
The only thing that can last is how you deal with circumstance
And I've got castles to build"
