Let It Shine: Lighthouses

 

 

“Lighthouse”  by James Taylor

  

 I’m a lonely lighthouse, not a ship out in the night

I’m watching the sea

She’s come half-way round the world to see the light

And to stay away from me 

There is a shipwreck lying at my feet

Some weary refugee from the rolling deep

Ah, would you lose it all and fall for me?

Couldn’t we shine?

I’m rolling all my golden moments into one

Like to shine like the sun for one more summer day

Shine like a lighthouse for one last summer night

Flashing on, flashing, fading away

Well if you feel lost and lonely and don’t know where to go

And you hear this song on the radio

Or even if you’re feeling healthy and strong

You might like to sing along

But just because I might be standing here

That don’t mean I won’t be wrong this time

You could follow me and lose your mind

Bound for South America

A world away from here

Is a ship that sails the sea

Is a man who’s just like me

And I wish that I was there
