I am the lighthouse
Worn by the weather and the waves
I keep my lamp lit
To warn the sailors on their way

I'll tell a story
Paint you a picture from my past
I was so happy
But joy in this life seldom lasts

I had a keeper
He helped me warn the ships at sea
We had grown closer
'Til his joy meant everything to me

He was to marry
A girl who shown with beauty and light
They loved each other
And with me watched the sunsets into nights

And the waves crash in around me
The sand slips out to the sea
And the winds that blow remind me
Of what has been
And what can never be

She'd had to leave us
My keeper he prayed for a safe return
But when the night came
The weather to a raging storm had turned
He watched her ship fight
But in vain against the wild and terrible wave
And me so helpless
As dashed against the rocks she met her end

And the waves crash in around me
The sand slips out to the sea
And the winds that blow remind me
Of what has been
And what can never be

Then on the next day
My keeper found her washed upon the shore
He kissed her cold face
And that they'd be together soon he swore

I saw him crying
Watched as he buried her in the sand
And then he climbed my tower
And off the edge of me he ran

And the waves crash in around me
The sand slips out to the sea
And the winds that blow remind me
Of what has been
And what can never be

I am the lighthouse
Worn by the weather and the waves
And though I'm empty
I still warn the sailors on their way
