Soft Sands
The Chordettes Lyrics


Now that you're gone
I'm alone on the shore
You're not walking with me
So the song of the sea
Isn't sweet anymore

But the soft, soft sands
Are the same soft sands
Where we once had such fun
In the warm summer sunshine

There is the rock
That you dared me to climb
Darling, that was the place
Where we shared an embrace
For the very first time

Yes, the rock still stands
On the soft soft sands
And it's more than my heart can bear

Why do I still dream of that storybook ending?
When will my heart ever learn?
Why do I sit here pretending
That you will, that you will, that you will return?

Time and again, since you told me goodbye
I come back to this spot
'Cause it's all that I got to remember you by
And I run my hands through the soft, soft sands
Where you once said you'd always care

@Rick Croucher You are very welcome. This song was the "B" side of their hit "Just Between You and Me" from 1957. Great song, for sure. Thanks so much for listening and commenting!

This is simply beautiful.  I can't believe I've never heard it before, even though I'm familiar with the Chordettes and I have sung in a Sweet Adelines (women's barbershop) ensemble and in several quartets.  I would love to find the vocal arrangement for this song.  Thanks for sharing this video!

@Jymster46 Thanks, Jim! Glad you enjoyed it :-) That quartet (formed from a chamber choir we all sing in) was short-lived because of all of our busy schedules but I hope we can revive it.

@susansoprano Thank you, Susan! I watched your video of your groups rendition of The Ink Spots "Java Jive"...Very, Very Cool...Loved It :))
