She sits like a sentinel
Our meeting on a beach
To see her out there means something's not out of reach and

Us and our invalid plans
Parched on watered soil
They turn to flames, the eyes of the old man now

So take us to the lighthouse
Parcels on our laps
Over to the lighthouse
We will paddle out

Yeah only she can tuck us in
Not we ourselves
'Cos genius is cold within
A rusted shell

He's an old icings dream
A brittle yellow brook
A tiny thin candle for a heart and a brain but

If that's all that we have left
An umbrella in the wind
This house will be left to gills and the rats now

So take us to the lighthouse
Parcels on our laps
Over to the lighthouse
And you'll swim out

Yeah only she can tuck us in
Not we ourselves
'Cos genius is so cold within
A rusted shell

Theres no need to remind us of what we've lost
We have now gained your transport
At such a cost

We ain't known or even free
Or halfway to clever without her
Our Mrs Ramsey
