Castles in the Sky is a collaboration with Canadian rock musician Nathan Nasby to create a heartfelt anthem towards breaking barriers, overcoming challenges in life and defeating one's own doubts to achieving their own success. This song is also the "official soundtrack" to the novel "Olympian Confessions: Hera" by Erin Kinsella.

Cover illustration by Sam Mayle (


You were born in the ashes 
Where the smoke leaves you breathless  But the fire's where you learned to survive   
Nothing short of disaster  
When the dreams you've been chasing  Seem to fall like your tears in the night 

Start picking your life up 
Brick by brick and  
Build your castles in the sky   
In the sky y y 
Oh oh oh   
Get up 
Stand up 
You know 
You got to fight   

Pick up  
Your life 
And build 
Your castles 
In the sky 

You hang it all on a moment 
With the odds stacked against you 
but you know 
You were born for this fight   
Every scar a reminder 
That you are a survivor 
It couldn't kill 
So you're stronger this time 

You were born in the ashes 
Where the smoke leaves you breathless  But the fire's where you learned to survive    But looking up now you see it 
You feel the earth fall beneath you 
As you reach for your place
