8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
The sunbeams kissed the sands, My fate was in your hands,
The day I met you dear.
And though I find you've gone, Your mem'ry lingers on,
I can't forget you dear.
On a day like today, We passed the time away,
Writing Love Letters In The Sand.
How you laughed when I cried, Each time I saw the tide,
Take our Love Letters In The Sand.
You made a vow that you would always be true,
But somehow that vow meant nothing to you.
Now my poor heart just aches, With ev'ry wave it breaks,
Over Love Letters In The Sand.
