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.
[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/the-lighthouses-tale-video-lyrics-creek-nickel.html ] 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.
