"Building castles in ..." in lyrics

Fauve ≠ - Rub A Dub

It's been so long since it happened, and here it hits me, until there I wasn't really doing anything, I was going from one person to another without really getting attached. It was kinda creepy but yeah... I'm like anybody else, what do you expect...
But there I see us totally dancing in slow-mo on some rub-a-dub body-to-body, we look at each other in the eyes, and we set out again by tacking.
I see us running, swimming naked, blushing, sweating, until we burn, building castles in the air, and making love under lightning.

Jesús Quintero - We became old

We became old without noticing; as if we had gone to bed one night and the following morning when we opened our eyes ten or fifteen years had gone by.

We became old running from the fuzz, running in order not to be late for an appointment or a rock concert, not to miss the bus or so that the last hour won't screw us up.
we've grown old painting the walls, dreaming of heavens, building those castles in the air that people calling utopias.
