Dido - Sand In My Shoes

~ Sand In My Shoes (Remix) | Dido ~

Warm breezes blowing through my hair, the sound of the birds, the smell of the ocean and long walks at sunrise & sunset . . . this song reminds me of being on a beach vacation, coming home and feeling like I'm still there. Anyone can probably relate to the words of this song and the realization of being back home with the same problems waiting, but seeing them in a different perspective after chilling out.

This remix version of the song Sand In My Shoes is so relaxing . . . like a walk on the beach getting sand in my shoes. The song comes from Dido's album Life For Rent.

Sand In My Shoes | Dido

Two weeks away it feels like the whole world should've changed
But I'm home now
And things still look the same
I think I'll leave it till tomorrow to unpack
Try to forget for one more night
That I'm back in my flat on the road
Where the cars never stop going through the night
To a life where I can watch sunset
I don't have time
I don't have time

I've still got sand in my shoes
And I can't shake the thought of you
I should get on, forget you
But why would I want to
I know we said goodbye
Anything else would've been confused but I wanna see you again

Tomorrow's back to work and down to sanity
should run a bath and then clear up the mess I made before I left here
Try to remind myself that I was happy here
Before I knew that I could get on the plane and fly away
From the road where the cars never stop going through the night
To a life where I can watch sunset
And take my time
Take all our time


I wanna see you again
Two weeks away, all it takes to change and turn me around, I've fallen
I walked away and never said that I wanted to see again

[Chorus x2]

I wanna see you again
I wanna see you again

I like this music player format. So clear compared with You Tube entries. EXCELLENT ;-)
