"Sand In My Shoes" is the fourth and final single from Dido's second album, Life for Rent. The single under-performed in the UK reached number 29 on the UK Singles Chart; however, the track found more success in the UK when Above & Beyond remixed it.[citation needed] The lyrics describe a single woman returning from a holiday to the drudgery of everyday life, reminiscing about a romantic encounter she had while away.[1]
