[While I'm here: That Bertolli's ad was a disgrace. Not as bad as the Aerie ads the CW used to run on Tuesdays, but still: Pretty bad.]

Met you at the mall
Didn’t know how far I would fall
My friends said I was a fool (you’re a fool) (shut up)
‘Cause you were older and got kicked out of school (you’re so rad)
Together we were gonna travel the globe
From Alberta to Ontario

But now I’m building sandcastles in the sand (sandcastles in the sand)
Thought I could fly when you held my hand (thought I could fly)
But now eternity turns to black and white
It was the greatest week and a half of my life

We used to go to the beach
Back when happiness was in our reach (so close)
On our favorite bench
We’d sit and talk and you taught me to French
You’re good at pullups and have radical hair
I hate my dad he’s so unfair (you don’t understand our love)

But now I’m building sandcastles in the sand (sandcastles in the sand)
Thought I could fly when I held your hand (I was wrong)
Eternity turns to black and white
It was the greatest week and a half of my life

It’s crazy no one gets me
Castles wash away
Come back please
I’ve changed my mind
Let’s go all the way (I love you, let’s do it)
I miss you

Sandcastles in the sand (oh, I miss your hair)
Thought I could fly when I held your hand (I thought you were the one)
Sandcastles wash away (I love you, let’s do it)
And all that’s left is some sand the next day
Sandcastles may be cute (I’m on the pill now)
But now all they do is remind me of you
(Let’s go all the way)
(You said it’d be okay)
(I’m sorry)
Sandcastles wash away
