lighthouse lyrics – the hush sound

take what you need while there’s time
the city will be earth in a short while
if i’m not mistaken it’s been in flames
you and i will escape to the seaside

there is a storm in the distance
the wind breathing warning of its imminence
there is a lighthouse five hundred yards down
you and i will be safe there

there is a girl who haunts that lighthouse
she saved me, i was swimming
so young i almost drowned
under the water she sang a story
of losing her lover
she calls a warning

love, you are foolish, you’re tired
your sleeplessness makes you a liar
the city is burning
the ocean is turning
our only chance is the lighthouse

her lover was a sailor
she went and she waited there
the door locked from the outside
lover never arrived so she sings there
soft as a siren luring the ships off their course, how alarming

we went in, we climbed up and looked out
the door locked from the outside
three ghosts in a lighthouse
