"Lighthouse" as written by and Kate Klim Antje Duvekot....
you, you're not the first to ask
and probably not the last
and I don't expect you to understand

why I stayed upon this rock
after the birds had gone
and all of the waves turned to sand

I am a lighthouse
in a desert and I stand alone
I dream of an ocean that was here a long time ago
and I remember his cool waters and I still glow

these days, the sunlight has bleached my paint
and the moonlight has made it plain
that nobody needs me to call them home

but I swear there was a time when I
would shine for him through the night
and he was the only ocean that I have known

I am a lighthouse
in a desert and I stand alone
I dream of an ocean that was here a long time ago
and I remember his cool waters and I still glow

now my lantern bears a crack
and I know he will not be back
but I will leave the light on forever

I am a lighthouse
in a desert and I stand alone
I dream of an ocean that was here a long time ago
and I remember his cool waters and I still glow
