Castles Made Of Sand

Castles Made Of Sand by Jimi Hendrix


Down the street you can hear her scream you're 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 war games 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 chief

Many moons passed and more the dream grew strong until

Tomorrow he would sing his first war song 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, whose heart was a frown

'Cause she was crippled for life,

And she couldn't 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 won't hurt me no more

But then a sight she'd never seen made her jump and say

Look a golden winged ship is passing my way

And it really didn't have to stop, it just kept on going...

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