Heart Like a Lighthouse

from by Dustin Drennen

lyrics

There was a girl in my town
Lo' was she something to behold
How I wanted her heart
But I settled for a guitar and a song

Now there are things about our lives
Like what could have been we'll never know
My pain is the absence of joy that I've known
And it's what keeps me moving on

She spoke with lips of fire
Man, I just wrote poems
I lost a season in her bedroom
Found reason on her tongue

I can’t say I remember her
like she was
As much as I find romance in her mystery
I know that ain’t love

My friend said she went mad
and she died alone
Now I’m standing outside the walls
I should have rescued her from

Sometimes the dark man comes on
looking just like the sun
And he steals away all of the beauty and virtue
of the young, we don’t notice till it’s gone

Ohoo, oh your wake cold that refuses the snow
Ohoo, oh I’ll cove you, I’ll cover you

Now, I gotta heart like a lighthouse and it shines through the storm for the crazy ones
Now, I gotta heart like a lighthouse and it shines through the storm for the crazy ones
