"Mansions on the Sand" as written by and Grant Lee Phillips Donavon Frankenreiter....
The summer on the docks
Remember all we did
And all those things you said
That they're not so long ago
When we were kids

I used to drive around
In the summer late
I rolled the windows down
And laughed
And listening to that sound
Old box of tapes

And there's so much sound
And the waves are breaking
Oh my heart is taking all she can
Come one day down to wash away
All those crumbling mansions on the sand

I've seen the neighborhood
I get a splash of paint
And fix the rotten wood
You know there's so much here the sun has caused to fade

And there's so much change
And the waves are breaking
Oh my heart has taken all she can
Come one day down to wash away
All those crumbling mansions on the sand

And I'll try to wrap my arms around the sea
Well I'll try to hold the surf back and the tide
Well I'm holding on to something that can't be
No matter how I try

And there's so much change
And the waves are breaking
And my heart had taken all she can
Come one day down to wash away
All those crumbling mansions on the sand

The summer on the docks
Remember all we did
And all those things you said back then
They're not so long ago
When we were kids
