The Lighthouse's Tale

Lyrics

I am a lighthouse, worn by the weather and the waves.
I keep my lamp lit, to warn the sailors on their way.

I'll tell a story, paint you a picture from my past.
I was so happy, but joy in this life seldom lasts.

This song changed my life.. one love!
I woke up one morning with a song stuck in my head and i couldnt figure out what song it was for the life of me! I finally found The Fox by Nickel Creek today and my mom told me i lost a cd of theirs when i was about seven. That was eight years ago. Amazing how music works with the brain. I absolutely love this band and recognize a lot of theit songs from eight years ago, but when i listened to this one, i couldnt help but shed a tear. By far my favorite music group now! (And i listen to metal).
Old song but good one
love this song
Have always loved this song from the first time- haunting, sad, thoughtful!

A story related by a lighthouse - how original. Such a haunting story. I am enriched by its beauty. Thanks.
just love this song ! incorporates alot of basic bluegrass harmony and lyricism with an angst that moves even the most groggedy old timer (me)!
The mandolin intro is amazing and beautiful.
