lyrics

When the tide comes in, gonna wash it all away
And there won't be any trace that we were ever here today
We left footprints on the shore and built castles in the sand
But they can't stand when the tide comes in

Underneath the setting sun
Take a look at what we've done
With the Ocean so wide before us
Soon it will all be gone
When the darkness comes down and the water comes in
It won't make any difference where we've been
Hubris is the original sin
It'll all be gone when the tide comes in

When the tide comes in, gonna wash it all away
And there won't be any trace that we were ever here today
We left footprints on the shore and built castles in the sand
But they can't stand when the tide comes in

The sun will rise tomorrow
God willin' we'll be here to see
Building new castles and leaving new tracks
Cause that's the only way we know how to be
With our buckets and our shovels and our heels dug in
And our blinders on and our will spread thin
Though we lose and lose we still believe we'll win
It'll all begin again when the tide comes in

Wash it all away to the sea
Though we walk heavy or we tread lightly
Traces of ourselves are all we see
Gonna have to let it go, let what-will-be be what-will be

When the tide comes in, gonna wash it all away
And there won't be any trace that we were ever here today
We left footprints on the shore and built castles in the sand
But they can't stand when the tide comes in
It'll all be gone when the tide comes in
It'll all begin again when the tide comes in
