Lighthouse

A little something from one of my favorite bands, Runrig.

Lighthouse
This world’s not my home
I’m a stranger to the storm
Save me, save me
Where the race is quickest
The tide runs strong
Save me, save me
A big sky above me
West winds blow
Sailing long distance
Breaking the foam

There’s a lighthouse
Shining in the black
A lighthouse
Standing in the dark
All the world’s a ship
Shipwrecked on the seas
Breaking up in pieces
We’re clinging to the reef
There’s a lighthouse

There’s a sky full of trouble
Lifetimes and fear
Save me, save me
Taking the soundings
Now the tempest is here
Save me, save me
And daylight is breaking
On out-stretched hands
Lost on the ocean
Reaching for land

There’s a lighthouse
Shining in the black
A lighthouse
Standing in the dark
All the world’s a ship
Shipwrecked on the seas
Breaking up in pieces
We’re clinging to the reef
There’s a lighthouse

There’s a lighthouse
Shining in the black
A lighthouse
Standing in the dark
All the world’s a ship
Shipwrecked on the seas
Breaking up in pieces
We’re clinging to the reef
There’s a lighthouse

    I have never heard Runrig… maybe I’ll have to see if I can find a song online to listen to. British or Irish by any chance?

    I pray all is well! ?

    Bless you!

    Scottish – mix of Gaelic and Rock. Quite to my taste 🙂

  3. A very nice lighthouse poem/song. There are not many more terrifying things in life than being in a real shipwreck. Even a near miss is enough to make the biggest athiest offer a prayer to God. Thanks for sharing this.
