"Lighthouse" as written by Eric Nathan Robertson and Stephanie Taylor....
The lighthouse lost it's light
On her a long time ago
She got so used to it
This long and winding road

I'll never ever let you go

I can't believe
She whispered to me
I don't wanna breathe

This ship of fools sails west
By night time and by day
Circumnavigates her globe
Like a bullet gone astray

Come on home baby where it's safe

I can't believe
She whispered to me
I don't wanna breathe
I don't wanna breathe

Even if you drink
From the chalice of cheap escape
And fade away

I'll never ever let you go

I can't believe
She whispered to me
I don't wanna breathe

I don't wanna breathe
She whispered to me
Now I can't believe
She whispered to me

    General CommentI think it's about someone who has lost all hope, and gone off by herself either physically or mentally to try and work things out. Her friend/lover is saying to her "hey, I'm always here for you, no matter what. Don't forget that and go and do something stupid, because even if no one else does, I really do care about you."

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs from "Birds of Pray." That is a great take on the lyrics and I agree completely.

    General CommentI love this song so much, one of my favorites by Live. It reminds me of this one girl I used to date.

    General CommentIs the lyric really "from the chalice of cheap escape?" Knowing Ed, I was expecting the chalice to be named after some Indian religious deity or something. It does kinda sound like cheap escape, but I thought it was more like Chi Piesekape or something. LOL Great song.
