The woman stands alone
She is chained to the sandy ground
Build build build
This castle was made for two
The sand feels like needles
Sand built up
She worked so hard
Build build build
Dry sand wet sand
Dry wet dry wet
The pressure so strong
Crack. It falls
Build build build
Dry wet dry wet
A perfect structure
It's smooth like paper
The tide comes in
Build build build
She worked too hard
The wave steals the sand
Don't give up now
You have come too far
Build! You have to build
Dry wet remember dry wet
This sandcastle is all you have
The water grabs your feet
"Swim be with the sand"
She turns away, she runs
Her feet touch the sidewalk
The chains break and she never looks back
