SAND CASTLE

Words and Music by Anne M Carley © 1994 – 2002

Viewed in a certain light, this is an inspirational song.

Sand castle on a rainy day
You build it up and then it washes away
Sand castle on a rainy day
Tomorrow you’ll do it again
You’ll go back – and do it again.

Why make an effort to remember a name
Why not just walk by
With or without a friend your life will wash away
What makes a person try?

Sand castle on a rainy day
You build it up and then it washes away
Sand castle on a rainy day
Tomorrow you’ll do it again
You’ll go back – and do it again.

A song is dying as it is sung
Nothing left to hold
With or without your hope the song will wash away
That story won’t be told
That story won’t be told

Sand castle on a rainy day
You build it up and then it washes away
Build a sand castle on a rainy day
Tomorrow you’ll do it again
You’ll go back – and do it again.

A thing of beauty will not be spared
It will crumble too
With or without your love the work will wash away
Disappear from view
Disappear from view

Sand castle on a rainy day
You build it up and then it washes away
Build a sand castle on a rainy day
Tomorrow you’ll do it again
You’ll go back – and do it again
