Lonely

my walk from shore to shore
takes fourty steps
not a single one more

if god spat me out on
this desert rock
I believe there’s none

caress these walls of red and white
beyond the bright light

I’m a loner on a lighthouse
just a loner on a lighthouse
I’m a loner on a lighthouse
just a loner on a lighthouse

years ago a gull
stole the clock
off the wall

I’m talking to the fish
they won’t talk back
although I wish

caress these walls of red and white
beyond the bright light

looping round and round my lighthouse
looping round and round my lighthouse
I’m a loner on a lighthouse
just a loner on a lighthouse

I’m tired of my carousel life
I take a last look at the dead duck dancing in the surf
and I turn down the engine
I turn down the engine
I turn down the engine
and I kill the light
I kill the light
I kill the light
I kill the light

I listen to the loop
and the gust
and the gloom

I’m waiting for your ship
soon to crash
upon my strip

welcome to my lonely lighthouse
welcome to my lonely lighthouse
eventually you’re closer than the horizon
now you’re closer than the horizon
now you see me now that you don’t
now you see me now that you don’t
I’m a loner on a lighthouse
I’m just a loner on a lighthouse
