SANDMAN
The Box Tops


There was a time
I knew my mind
And needed no one else
As strong as stone
I stayed alone
Depending only on myself
And suddenly my eyes
Fell on you
And with a smile
You conquered me

I became a sandman
Crumbling in your hand
Just a sandman
You turned me into sand
I'm a sandman
But stone in love with you

No ties to bind
The wandering kind
I was a rolling stone
My only prayer
The restless wind
My only debt my own
Then with a word
You blew my mind
And you touched me
With your love

I became a sandman
Crumbling in your hand
Just a sandman
You turned me into sand
I'm a sandman
But stone in love with you
I became a sandman
Crumbling in your hand
Just a sandman
You turned me into sand
I'm a sandman
But stone in love with you
