"Sandcastles" as written by and Vincent Berry Ii Midian Mathers....
We built sand castles that washed away
I made you cry when I walked away
And although I promised that I couldn't stay, baby
Every promise don't work out that way, oh, babe
Every promise don't work out that way

Dishes smashed on my counter from our last encounter
Pictures snatched out the frame
Bitch, I scratched out your name and your face
What is it about you that I can't erase, baby?
Well every promise don't work out that way, no no, babe
Well every promise don't work out that way

And your heart is broken cause I walked away
Show me your scars and I won't walk away
And I know I promised that I couldn't stay, baby
Every promise don't work out that way, no no no no no
Every promise don't work out that way

    General CommentEvery promise don't turn out that way exactly what she says also remember together ain't always promised forever so live life each day as it comes, live it but enjoy it, be present in each and every moment in any second it could all be gone before your very eyes
