"Under The Light House" as written by Ian Thornley and Forest Williams....
Down here under the lighthouse
Upstairs you see for miles
Keep my name under the white out
And just let me miss you all the while (yeah)

Now I sit here with your letter
It's pushin' hard on my brain
You think they should shrink it
Well baby I think that's insane

No you woulda left me anyway
Well I'll just bow my head
I swear you might've left me anyway
So I'll leave you instead (yeah)

When I told you that I'm sorry
You told me that I'm full of fear
But when the music is just too loud
Well it's not your voice I hear (yeah)

Well you woulda left me anyway
So I'll just bow my head
I swear you might've left me anyway
So I'll leave you instead

Be alone
Let me bow my head
'Cause I'd rather be alone
Be alone
Be alone
Be alone

    General CommentGreat song... It's totally about trying to save pride but regretting the decision.

    Gotta love that lyric "I swear you mighta left me anyways"... Here's hoping I was right cause I'm not really sure if you would have left.

    General Commentsunday is right, just for the record guys, apparently Ian said that all of IN LOVING MEMORY OF is about 1 girl who fucked up his life at the time, and did up until like 2000 I think..

    General CommentThis isa beautiful song, i love Big Wreck they are one of my favourite groups
    so this is the way i interpret the song (keeping in mind thisis only the way i take it and i culd be totally wrong)
    the guy ended the relationship becuase things weren't working out and he suspected she had lost interest but he broke it off because of pride, and now he is alone thinking about the relationship
