lyrics

The Lantern and the Lighthouse

You know every way I've failed
and how I stumbled through my days
Trying to find some better way
To keep these shadows away
Leave a light on for me
And I'll leave a light on for you,
Teach this blind man to see
So I can find my way to be

I will keep this dark at bay
I will climb out through the day
I will keep this dark at bay
I will climb out to the day
I will keep us both inside
I will hold back this dark night,
I will keep us both inside
I will hold back this dark

I know it's you and I alone
I know we'll never make it home
But keep a light on for me
And I know we'll see it through
And if this night it runs you though
Keep a light on for you
I'll keep a light on for you
I'll keep a light on

I will keep this dark at bay
I will climb out through the day
I will keep this dark at bay
I will climb out to the day
I will keep us both inside
I will hold back this dark night,
I will keep us both inside
I will hold back this dark
