 I am a lighthouse, worn by the weather and the waves

-6 6   -5 -5   -4   -4 -5   -5  -5 -5   -5 6    -5
I keep my lamp lit, to warn the sailors on their way

-6   6   -5 -5 -4  -5    -5 -5 -5 6    -5   -4 4
I'll tell a story, paint you a picture from my past

-6 6  -5 -5 -4  4   -5  -5 -5   -5   -5 6   -5
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
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

[Chorus:]

-6  -6  7     6    -5  -5 -5  -4 
And the waves crashing around me,

-6  7    -5    -5  6  -5  -5
The sand slips out to the sea

-6  -6  7     -5   -5   4  4   -5  
And the winds that blow remind me

-5 -5   6   -5   -5  -5   -5  -4 4 3   -2
Of what has been and what can ne - ver 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 rock she met her end

[Chorus]

Then on the next day, my keeper found her washed up on 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 of the edge of me he ran

[Chorus]

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