lyrics

An expectation set I still haven’t met
A white lie disguised as encouragement
A proud affirmation designed to help cope
With a life seemingly devoid of hope
But you were a lighthouse to my abandoned ship
Whose cowardly captain lies dead somewhere in the ocean
And your beaconing light cried out though the effort was useless
Tumultuous shores eat the proof of my futile existence

Such a heavy burden to have to inherit
To try and love a vessel so detached and callous
And your weakening will erodes like rocks in the sea
To try and uphold a forecast you never believed
Yet you were a lighthouse to my abandoned ship
Whose self-concerned captain’s intentions we less than honest
And your warm glow is meaning in this otherwise pointless voyage
There are no heroes here pulling bodies out from the wreckage

Such innocent eyes that look upon me
With such faith and resolve and naiveté
For I cannot win I can only withdraw
Although I am your world now I am no one at all
But you are a lighthouse to my abandoned ship
Whose counterfeit captain surrendered before being captured
And your guiding illuminance although pure and brilliant
Will not return me to whole; I’m afraid there are too many pieces
But before I sink, please know that this trip was worth it
