From the ice, the blinding white
A schooner's gliding through the night
Angry sea, we sail alone
At last I'm going home

I'm going home

Phantoms lured me off my course
Tried to kill the man I was
You sent a guiding light
Lead me to my lavish bride

To the crag that braves the tide
To the beacon in the night
I trust in you (and)
I'm watching over you
To the souls that crouch in fear
To the ghosts that disappear
I trust in you (and)
I'm watching over you

To the crag that braves the tide
To the beacon in the night
I trust in you (and)
I'm watching over you
To the souls that crouch in fear
Your ghosts will disappear
I trust in you (and)
I'm watching over you

Seasons change, this time for good
Be this message understood
You're the house I occupy
You're the only reason why

I'm still alive

    General CommentI agree this is the best love song I ever heard. The crag that braves the tide...to me means someone who is the strength in his world and braves all that is thrown at them, all his temperaments. The beacon in the night..of course his light in darkness. Perfect.

    General CommentAt the start of this song its a love that only happens once in a life time. I can relate to this song so much Because it happened to me. Here is my two cents on it:

    From the ice, the blinding white
    A schooner's gliding through the night
    Angry sea, we sail alone
    At last I'm going home

    I'm going home.....

    1)in the sea of faces and people he sees the one the woman of his dreams love at 1st sight. Angry sea= people and friends trying to rip them apart. but they stand strong and say together= we sail alone. At last Im going home= he nows he has founn his love the woman he will marry



    Phantoms lured me off my course
    Tried to kill the man I was
    You sent a guiding light
    Lead me to my lavish bride
    2)Phantoms lured me off my course= thats easy fears for what happened in the past scared him away and tried to change the man he was and how he loves this woman. She showed him the way helped him face his fears and brought him back to her. Which is very hard for both people to do. He pushed her away but she stayed strong and didnt give up. Which lead him back to her. Now his wife!


    To the crag that braves the tide
    To the beacon in the night
    I trust in you (and)
    I'm watching over you
    To the souls that crouch in fear
    To the ghosts that disappear
    I trust in you (and)
    I'm watching over you
    3) to the crag is the relationship that they have and the beacon is her she still has to guide him from time to time which all woman have to do. But he trusts her and lets her show him the way and lets her help him. Now here is the messeage he is sending to the people... To the souls(people) that get scared, your fears will go away if you let them. Which is very true but often to late.


    Seasons change, this time for good
    Be this message understood
    You're the house I occupy
    You're the only reason why

    I'm still alive
    4) Seasons change this time for good= moods, fears, faults change and he is not going back to the way he was. Be this message understood= please understand I know what I want. You're the house I occupy you're the only reason way Im still alive= he loves her with all his heart and that he owes her his life because she has give him the happiness and love he thought he would never have,.
