Take the world’s weight off you
Strap it on my back
I’ll be your truth; I’ll be your light
You can hide behind me tonight

How did you end up closer to nothing?
One step back from where you used to stand
Are you flying in circles?
Because it is time for you to land

And you can’t pretend
That everything’s okay now
Because these deceptions need
To stop somehow

And you can stand on the edge
Just don’t be afraid to fall
And you can run but if you trip
You’re going to have to crawl

All castles of sand have to crumble sometime
Reach the top of the mountain and down you must climb
All castles of sand crumble sometime

A shadow was cast over everything
But the fire was just starting to shine within
But then she came
Waltzing in where the light had been

And I think I carry this load
I don’t think it’s too much
I think can take it
I’ll take for you

Take a step back from reality
And tell me what you see
Take a deep breath in
And breathe it out again

You’re learning that
All castles of sand have to crumble sometime
Reach the top of the mountain and down you must climb
All castles of sand crumble sometime

And I can feel you falling
Further you fall
Your body weight is nothing
Like you were never here at all

Take a step back from reality
Breathe in a deep breath of air
And tell me what you see out there

Do you see the castles of sand?
They are crumbling down?
All castles of sand crumble sometime.
