Lyrics of The Lighthouse's Tale

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 crashing around me the sand slips out to 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
In me so helpless as dashed against the rock she met her end
And the waves crashing around me the sand slips out to 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'd swore
I saw him crying watched as he buried her in the sand
And then he climbed my tower and off of the edge of me he ran
And the waves crashing around me the sand slips out to 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 am empty I still warn the sailors on their way
