The Lighthouse's Tale - Nickel Creek

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 shown with beauty and life.
They loved each other, and with me watched the sunsets into night.

And the waves crashing around me
The sands of time to see.
And the winds that blow remind me
of what has been, and what can nevermore be.

She'd had to leave us, keeper he prayed for her safe return.
But when night came, the weather to a raging storm had turned.
He watched her ship fight, but in vain against a whelming tidle wave.
And me, so helpless, cause dashed against the rocks she met her end.

And the waves crashing around me
The sands of time to see.
And the winds that blow remind me
of what has been, and what can nevermore be.

Then on the next day, the keeper found her washed up on my shore.
He kissed her cold face, that they'd be together soon he swore.
And I saw him crying, and watched as he buried her in the sand.
Then he climbed my tower, and off the edge of me he ran.

And the waves crashing around me
The sands of time to see.
And the winds that blow remind me
of what has been, and what can nevermore be.
