Favorite Quote:
"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life's about creating yourself." -Troye Sivan


Waves will crash

And crash and crash

To destroy the little piece of pride you form in the sand

And I know it can get tiring

Rebuilding what once stood

But you can't give up on what makes you smile

Even if making it permanent takes a while

 

Chorus

Keep building sandcastles 'till they stay

Don't let your dreams go astray

Protect what you've created from

What the doubtful currents send

They can only take what you give away

So build your walls thick

Don't fall for the ocean's tricks

Keep building sandcastles, sandcastles

One day it'll be worth all the hassle

 

The sand is as stable as you make it

There's nothing a little faith can't hold

You can't stop the ocean from hitting what you mold

Just hold tight 'till the next day

And block out what the salty waters say

 

It takes hardship to get stronger

Use the criticism to get better

An almighty fort is what you're creating

Just go, you're kindom is awaiting

 

Chorus

Keep building sandcastles 'till they stay

Don't let your dreams go astray

Protect what you've created from

What the doubtful currents send

They can only take what you give away

So build your walls thick

Don't fall for the ocean's tricks

Keep building sandcastles, sandcastles

One day it'll be worth all the hassle

 

Bridge

Don't let your dreams crumble

Keep building sandcastles

It's okay, everyone stumbles

Keep building sandcastles

Just do you and the rest will come in time

Keep building sandcastles

I know it's dark now but the sun will soon shine

and show to the world what you've made

with tiny grains of sand you formed with your restless hands

This is the third song I wrote. It means a lot to me, for I wrote it in a time when I was going through a hard time and felt like giving up.
