Strawbs – Burning For Me lyrics

There's a house on the headland
Overlooking the sea
They're burning a lantern by day and by night
It is burning for me.

There's a fire on the far hill
It's a warning to be
They're burning a beacon by day and by night
It is burning for me.

I long to feel the anchor down
When they ring the harbour bell
It's good to be back home again
And know that all is well
And when the stormy southern seas
Are running wild and free
You light a lamp of love at home
It is burning for me.

There's a light in the distance
It is easy to see
They're burning a candle by day and by night
It is burning for me.
