  • Down the street you can hear her scream youre a disgrace
    As she slams the door in his drunken face
    And now he stands outside
    And all the neighbours start to gossip and drool
    He cries oh, girl you must be mad,
    What happened to the sweet love you and me had?
    Against the door he leans and starts a scene,
    And his tears fall and burn the garden green

    And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually

    A little indian brave who before he was ten,
    Played wargames in the woods with his indian friends
    And he built up a dream that when he grew up
    He would be a fearless warrior indian cheif
    Many moons past and more the dream grew strong until
    Tomorrow he would sing his first warsong and fight his first battle
    But something went wrong, surprise attack killed him in his sleep that night

    And so castles made of sand melts into the sea, eventually

    There was a young girl, whos heart was a frown
    cause she was crippled for life,
    And she couldnt speak a sound
    And she wished and prayed she could stop living,
    So she decided to die
    She drew her wheelchair to the edge of the shore
    And to her legs she smiled you wont hurt me no more
    But then a sight shed never seen made her jump and say
    Look a golden winged ship is passing my way

    And it really didnt have to stop, it just kept on going...
