Just Sand – Original lyrics and music by Kendra Dantes |Studio Version

How to play "Just Sand" on piano, originally by Kendra Dantes


Here are all the notes, chords, lyrics, lead sheets, play-alongs, chord charts and MIDI files you could want to play this awesome song just like Kendra...

Inspiration for this song came from a poem called “Sand Castles” written by Chad Josephy Thieman & Tina Bryant from their poetry book called “Sea of Serenity”. Originally I wrote this song on piano, but later felt it needed the feel of the ukulele so I switched it. I think different instruments give songs different texture and feeling. The uke just seemed to suit this song better.

Lyrics for this original song:

We’re all made of dust, we’re all so small
We don’t make a difference unless we stand tall
Obstacles come our way making us break
But those who are strong can become great

We’re all just sand trying to be the biggest castle
But we’re washed away by bigger waves
We rebuild and we get back up
We can, we can stand
We’re all just sand, sand, sand

We’re all made of dust, we can be broken
So find that inner peace, our mind and heart open

The voices will always whisper
They will chatter in our minds
So close your eyes and let them shout
One day you’ll leave them all behind
