Sky and Sand
Paul Kalkbrenner Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

In the nighttime
When the world is at it's rest
You will find me
In the place I know the best
Dancin', shoutin'
Flyin' to the moon
Don't have to worry
'Cause I'll be come back soon

And we build up castles
In the sky and in the sand
Design our own world
Ain't nobody understand
I found myself alive
In the palm of your hand
As long as we are flyin'
All this world ain't got no end

In the daytime
You will find me by your side
Tryin' to do my best
And tryin' to make things right
When it all turns wrong
There's no fault but mine
But it won't hit hard
'Cause you let me shine

And we build up castles
In the sky and in the sand
Design our own world
Ain't nobody understand
I found myself alive
In the palm of your hand




As long as we are flyin'
All this world ain't got no end

Overall Meaning

Paul Kalkbrenner's "Sky and Sand" is a reflective song that feels like a mixture between an introspective thought and a conversation with a close person. It feels like a personal journey towards something unknown, yet transcendent. The lyrics of the song generate a sense of being lost, but at the same time hopeful for the future, because of a trusted partner. The singer depicts himself as flying in the night-time in his safe space or comfort zone. He is dancing, shouting, and flying to the moon, and he is not worried because he knows that he will be back soon. It is evident that the world is not a convenient space, but he has found a place where he is happy, and it is the air.


The chorus of the song is about building castles in the sky and the sand, designing a perfect world that nobody can understand. The singer has found himself alive in the palm of someone's hand. The person holding him is the one allowing him to shine, letting him find the light even in the darkest night. During the daytime, the persona feels by his partner's side, trying to do his best and make things right. When he falls short, all blame falls on him, but it will not hurt him as much because of his companion's support. The last line of the song, " As long as we are flying, all this world ain't got no end," suggests that the singer has found a partner with whom he can do anything and everything, including soar in the sky.

Sky and Sand ist das einzige Lied das man sich immer und immer wieder anhören kann, ich bekomme so eine komische Stimmung beim anhören, ich bin glücklich und traurig zu gleich, ich bin verliebt in dieses Lied, ich bin verliebt in den Text, ich bin verliebt in die Melodie. Ein Meisterwerk der Musik. Ich verbinde damit so viel Erinnerungen, ob gut ob schlecht. Das Lied ist einfach ein Lied was verbindet. Ich bin 2003 geboren und mit diesem Mann aufgewachsen durch meinen Vater der sehr viel von Pauls Musik hält...das Lied verbindet uns irgendwie, leider gibt es in meinem Freundeskreis kaum Leute die bei dem Lied so fühlen, hoffentlich hat es jemand bis hier gelesen und fühlt das selbe...

Du bist toll so wie du bist!

An Paul: Es wäre mein größter Traum dich einmal zu treffen!!

Danke fürs lesen!! :)

Funfact: Ich heiße auch Paul :)

J'adore cette chanson. Pour moi tout y est, de la bonne musique, un peu de Berlin, un peut de Leipzig, un peu de BACH et un clin d’œil à la France.

@@maxwerth6641 Ich auch und ich fühle den Song so sehr. Da kommt immer irgendwie Nostalgie in mir hoch. Ich erinnere mich an alle Erfahrungen, die ich bisher gemacht habe, ob gut oder schlecht. Viele schöne Erfahrungen würde ich gerne noch mal erleben, während die schlechten Erfahrungen mich über die Jahre stark gemacht haben. Dieser Song ist, wie viele andere auch schon sagten eine emotionale Reise.

I was once driving in the car with this song blasting through the speakers. It was getting dark, I looked around and on my left side the sky was as dark as possible, while on my right side it was still pretty light. Felt like splitting day and night, literally. Gave me goosebumps all over while this song was on. Felt amazing! Every song is a masterpiece though, but this one feels special. Makes me think back in time about all memories made. So much love.
