"Lighthouse" as written by and Joseph Lee Henry....
Oh my dear I've swallowed the moon
And left it dark like a ring burned on a spoon
But now all the stars they fall around you
And land at your feet to light up the room

The sign of the times, the rules of the road
And our coat of arms all scream that mercy gets old
But your secret heart as still as a bloom
Waits at the door to light up the room

Your bed is adrift, it's come loose from the floor
The dead float up like dreams, I push them back with my arm like an oar
But your face is alive like a nickel cartoon
Shown on the wall to light up the room

The siren on top of the library wall
The stairs that give way at the end of the hall
The pawnshop pavilion, the newspaper saloon
All burn in your wake and light up the room
They burn in your wake and light up the room
Light up the room
