The Hush Sound – Lighthouse lyrics

Take what you need while there's time.
The city will be earth in a short while-
If I'm not mistaken it's been in flames.
You and I will escape to the seaside.

There is a storm in the distance,
The wind breathing warning of it's imminence.
There is a lighthouse five hundred yards down;
You and I will be safe there.

There is a girl who haunts that lighthouse.
She saved me, I was swimming,
So young I almost drowned.
Under the water she sang a story
Of losing her lover-
She calls a warning...

Love, you are foolish, you're tired;
Your sleeplessness makes you a liar.
The city is burning,
The ocean is turning,
Our only chance is the lighthouse.

Her lover was a sailor-
She went and she waited there,
The door locked from the outside.
Lover never arrived so she sings there,
Soft as a siren luring the ships off their course, how alarming...

We went in, we climbed up, and looked out.
The door locked from the outside,
Three ghosts in a lighthouse...
