Co-Written by Ward Pike and David Vaters in St. John's, Newfoundland. Ward is an amazing musician, producer and great song writer! The song speaks for its self. I have personally lived this song and finally realized that my career, status in life, my businesses, pride of life mean nothing. We all have at one time or another asked the question what am I doing and is it worth building things to impress myself or others when ultimately it is all built on sand and not the solid rock.

Lyrics

When I was a child i spent the day at the beach
My whole world was within my reach
I'd build up a city then tear it down
My head in the clouds
My feet on the ground
I'd start all over build one anew
And this castle would be bigger too
When my master piece will not be complete
The tide would roll in and wash it away

Building castles in the sand
They were never meant to stand
Each of us is just one man
Building castles in the sand

Now as a man life seems complete
Keeping my whole world within my reach
Building it up just to be torn down
My gathered possessions are scattered around
I want to start a life anew
And this time I will include you
My master piece will not be complete
Until I lay it at your feet

Building castles in the sand
They were never meant to stand
Each of us is just one man
Building castles in the sand

and just like a child I realized
The moment I looked into you eyes
And just like a child
I understand without the rock we're building castles in the sand

I wanna start a life anew
And this time I will include you
My master price will
not be complete until I lay it at your feet

Building castles in the sand
They were never meant to stand
Each of us is just one man
Building castles in the sand

Without the rock I'm just one man building castles in the sand
