My Pride Is like a Castle in the Sand


My pride is like a castle in the sand

Washed away by hope and need and pain.

You left me holding someone else's hand,

And now you stand alone in midnight rain.

I want you back again if you want me;

I'm ready to rebuild what we have lost,

As the owner of a dream swept out to sea

Builds back upon the beach despite the cost.

My love for you is stronger than the waves,

Stronger than the doubts that we may share;

If you will say the word that my heart craves,

I'll find some flowered field and take you there.

And Time will sweep this interlude away;

It will barely be a memory someday.
