My Pride Is like a Castle in the Sand

Music: In Nomine.
By Orlando Gibbons. Sequenced by David Cooke.

My pride is like a castle in the sand
Washed away by hope and need and pain.
You left me holding someone else's hand,
And now you stand alone in midnight rain.
I want you back again if you want me;
I'm ready to rebuild what we have lost,
As the owner of a dream swept out to sea
Builds back upon the beach despite the cost.
My love for you is stronger than the waves,
Stronger than the doubts that we may share;
If you will say the word that my heart craves,
I'll find some flowered field and take you there.
And Time will sweep this interlude away;
It will barely be a memory someday.
