lighthouse - Lyrics

And your baby's hanging on looking at pictures on the phone
You're back at home while I've gone away
We thought it wouldn't feel long because aren't we so independent
But the wind out here is strong it
blew right through those confidences

And the sky's been coming down as if the green could get more green
As if the poppies had just thirst and thought the sun was just a dream
The water on the road looks like a river lost control
Spilling at the seams and soaking through my jeans

And I run up to the hill, run right through the battery
The military men have gone and left this all to me
Listen the wind is making songs up in the trees all the day long
They're singing more than me, they're making their own reveille

I want the lighthouse to be on
When the evening's coming on
'Cause when the lighthouse isn't on
The night can feel so long
Turn on the lighthouse, turn it on
So the nights don't feel so long

I'm just out here watching clouds I could be famous for doing this
Just thinking thoughts there's nothing to it
And in the days I make it right I've got my work to do
I can clean up the windows and serenade the view

But when the sky gets darkened down I just want to be known by you
In our lighthouse I can feel you feel it too

I want the lighthouse to be on
When the evening's coming on
'Cause when the lighthouse isn't on
The night can feel so long
Turn on the lighthouse turn it on
Put the million candles on

I want the lighthouse to be on
When the evening's coming on
'Cause when the lighthouse isn't on
The night can feel so long
Turn on the lighthouse turn it on
Put the million candles on
