Track Name: Sandcastles
A slowly decaying grave, cuts a bloody mark
A thousand years underwater in the dark
It's been so long since I cried
It's been so long since I cried

It's not so easy for me to say goodbye
After all this time, it hurts for me to even try
It's been so long since I've felt you
It's been so long since I've felt you


An old canvas blankets us from the snow
An hour left to freeze, just an hour to go,
It's been so long since I lost you,
It's been so long since I lost you.

I hold you close in hopes of warmth under that deadly chill,
Much too late they'll come to save us from nature's twisted thrill,
But before I say goodbye, before I leave I have to let you know
Before my life dies, I'll feel better if you know
that

Even though I know that it was such a long long time ago
Since I was young and since the very first day that we said hello
I've been holding onto the memories of your soft soft hand
wrapped around my arm pulling me towards a box of sand
where we'd play until the day was done and we both went home
And leave those sandcastles to sit alone until the rain would come
I loved you
I loved you


I remember when I'd watch life go by through a bus window,
I'd watch the trees pass and hope that I would not grow so slow
It's been so long since I felt that way
It's been so long since I felt that way

Down that long long road we walked through the falling leaves
Hand in hand, happy words on our lips, a time of quiet relief
It's been so long since I could feel at rest
It's been so long since I could feel at rest


your favorite song played you down the aisle,
My happiness was reflected only in your loving smile,
It's been so long since I have heard that song
It's been so long since I have heard that song

the roughest trip we took could never ever pull me from you
all these years down the road I'm in pain to know that I'm not yet with you
But I'll only say goodbye to this world which has missed you so
Now it's my time to die, and I won't even cry because I know,
that


Even though I know that it was such a long long time ago
Since I was young and since the very first day that we said hello
I've been holding onto the memories of your soft soft hand
wrapped around my arm pulling me towards a box of sand
where we'd play until the day was done and we both went home
And leave those sandcastles to sit alone until the rain would come
I loved you
I loved you
