The Lighthouse's Tale Lyrics

I am a 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
Till his joy meant everything to me
And he was to marry
A girl who shone with beauty and light
And they loved each other
And with me watched the sunsets into night

And the waves crash 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 her 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 wind
In me, so helpless
As dashed against the rocks, she met her end

And the waves crash 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 up on the shore
He kissed her cold face
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 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 a lighthouse
Worn by the weather and the waves
And though I'm empty
I still warn the sailors on their way
Ever since you mounted me I'm afraid that I am dying
