about

Sandancer is a beautiful and heartfelt acoustic ballad about love, life and loss. The song tells the story of meeting and falling in love with a girl from the coastal town South Shields in the North of England that affectionately refers to it's own people as "Sandancers".

lyrics

The first time I met you, I thought your voice was surreal
It was like every word that you said was a song,
And I wanted to sing-along

I may be a posh boy, and you may be keeping it real
This Fairy from South, and this Angel from North
The stars aligned of course

They call you a Sandancer
I’m not really sure what it means,
but I know it means you so I guess I’m a Sandancer too

Sometimes when I’m up there, I can’t make out what people say
Your mum is your mam and your gran is your nan
I’ll stay quiet and hold your hand

They’re full of strange words like tara pet, wey-aye and howay
It’s hard to keep up with this funny old lot
but I’ll give it my best shot

They call you a Sandancer
I’m not really sure what it means,
but I know it means you so I guess I’m a Sandancer too

Maybe one day I will call this town my home,
I’ll never be lost for a good cup o’ tea
Cos they treat me like family

I don’t really blend in but I won’t be here alone
You will be here night and day at my side,
And I’ll walk the streets with pride

They call you a Sandancer
You move me in all the right ways
They call you a Sandancer
I’ll love you for all of my days
They call you a Sandancer
I finally know what it means
I know it means you so call me a Sandancer too
