It's the place that's said to break
It's just as safe from the outside tonight

And I warned them
I face the storms at the tides
From the lighthouse

And I warned them
Unleash the storm and the night

Oh...

What do the waves have to say now?
What do the waves have to say now?

Slow down

And let the waves have their way now
Slow, and let the waves have their day

And I warned them

Here I've been living on roofs made from sin
I put an outward, "Begin, begin."

Here I've been lucid I'm living within
Inwardly urgent and sinking again

The Lighthouse
