CASTLES IN THE SAND - Thunder
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kengus

>>Thunder was a great band that didn't get as much attention as they
would've deserved. This is one of their great rock songs. The chorus
and interlude are played with power chords I think. Try it out.<<

VERSE1
              Am            F/A
There must’ve been a moment
  C             G
A second or a time
       Am           F/A    C                     G
When I didn't look up or I missed some kind of sign
           Am              F/A
Turned the wrong direction
             C              G
When she was just an inch away
       Am               F/A
Like a missed connection
       C               G
And my future slipped away

PRE-CHORUS
Fsus4                         F
   There've been times when I feel like I'm
   Fsus4                 Am7
Conspired against by fate
Bsus4                                Dsus4  D
   It's almost bad enough to make me hate

CHORUS
Am                         F             C   G
   I'm sick of building castles in the sand
Am                   F              G      C        D       (Em)
   Just waiting for another fake to break my promised land
F                            G               C      G/B       Am     G
   I've been looking for the real thing in a lonely one night stand
D/F#                            F   G
   Like building castles in the sand

[1/2 of INTRO]

VERSE2/PRE-CHORUS
       Am        F/A  C         G
Cos it terrifies me, ending up alone
       Am          F/A      C                G
And it walks beside me, the ghost of chances gone
Bsus4                  F             Bsus4                 Am7
   Did I have it did I let it go, or close the door too fast?
Bsus4                                 Dsus4         D
   Is there an answer locked up in my past?...in my past

CHORUS2
Am                         F             C   G
   I'm sick of building castles in the sand
Am                      F               G       C        D     (Em)
   Seems like everybody else I know can hold it in their hands
F                  G              C        B/G        Am    G
   So will it ever happen or am I doomed to walk this land
D/F#                            F   G
   Just building castles in the sand?

[SOLO]
Am F/A C G  x2

Bsus4 F Bsus4 G G/A G/B

INTERLUDE
          D5  E5            F5       G5         A5 B5 C5 E5
I've been crying, I've been living alone so long
          D5       E5         F5    G5
I've been over and over the reasons
      F                           G
But I can't find the thing that's wrong
      D5  E5        F5         G5         A5 G5 E5 B5
In my mind, all the evidence seems to say
C                                G                 Em
  I wouldn't even know it if she walked right in today

CHORUS2
Am                         F             C   G
   I'm sick of building castles in the sand
Am                      F               G       C        D     (Em)
   Seems like everybody else I know can hold it in their hands
F                  G              C        B/G        Am    G
   So will it ever happen or am I doomed to walk this land
D/F#             G     Em        Am... (repeat Am-F-C-G)
   Just building castles in the sand?
