The Lantern Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

We, in our present life
Knew that the stars were right
That if you are the first to go
You'll leave a sign to let me know, tell me so
Please, carry the lantern lights

You crossed the sea of night
Free from the spell of fright
Your cloak, it is a spirit shroud
You wake me in my sleeping hours, like a cloud
So, please, carry the lantern high

Me, in my sorry plight
You waiting every night
My face, it turns a deathly pale
You're talking to me through your veil, I hear you wail
So, please carry the lantern light

The servants sleep
The door's are barred
You hear the stopping of my heart, we never part
So, please carry the lantern high
