(lyrics and music by James Seals and Dash Crofts, 1975)
From the albums I'LL PLAY FOR YOU (1975), GREATEST HITS (1975) and
THE SEALS & CROFTS COLLECTION (1979).

Every little thing you do makes me feel good.
And I could be your prince, babe, if I only would.
And I could take you places you think you'd like to go.
And I could show you secrets behind ev'ry closed door.

But it's only the castles in the sand. I'll never be your man.
Castles in the sand, they'll never, never stand.
Like castles in the sand, I'll never be your man.

Now every little thing you do makes me feel fine.
And I could be your daddy, if it's on your mind.
And I could buy you diamonds and all them fancy clothes.
And I could give you lovin' like nobody knows.
But it's only the castles in the sand, love. I'll never be your man.
Castles in the sand, they'll never, never stand.
Like castles in the sand, I'll never be your man.

Your eyes are dancing and saying to me in the sunlight, I want you so,
You are beautiful, a princess. But I'm like the sand when the wind blows.

It's only the castles in the sand. I'll never be your man.
Castles in the sand, they'll never, never stand.
Like castles in the sand, I'll never be your man.
Castles in the sand, castles in the sand, castles in the sand.
See the castles in the sand.
