    I took my three year old cranberry picking one nice fall day, on that seaside landscape was an old lighthouse so him being curious wanting to know what it was, I explained to him that when boats(or humans) were lost the light and the fog horn would guide them back to safety. He's now in care of Director of child and family, His mother my Daughter is now in jail because of a serious drug addiction and fighting the nattlle of getting him back. See Prince Edward Island doesn't take drug addiction as a sickness only as a crime. To this day I'm waiting for that foghorn to Blow where he'll be coming home. This song says it all. Thank You for the comforting lyrics. This is my daily prayer song. Thanks Again.

    I reckon this song is referring to the human races collective consciousness and the fact that we all come from the universe. We were born before the wind meaning that our consciousness has been around longer than the earth. We arrive on earth only because the conditions at this time allow humans to survive and then we sail back into the mystic (universe) when we die. I would love to know from Van himself what his meaning of the lyrics was when he wrote this v cool song.

    This song, in my opinion is the best track Van ever did. As much as it may sound like he is talking about a woman, he is not. He is talking about the White Cliffs of Dover on the coast of England. This song, like many others talks about things they love, other than a special person.
