There is this sadness I can’t shake
Sometimes I feel my heart shall break
I’ve trod so many paths to find
Some place where fears safely unwind.
Since I have been a little child
With conscience and a manner mild
I’ve tried to be my whole life through
To all my hopes and dreams true blue.
Somehow that’s never quite enough
Because life’s road is long and tough
The battle wages on and on
With only sand to build upon !
