I wish that I,
Could get a little closer to,
The man in the lighthouse on the shore.
I wish that I,
Could get a little closer to,
The man in the lighthouse on the shore.

These waters are dark,
And I'm sailing all alone.
Sharp coral reefs,
And snags lie all along.
Then there's the fog,
That leaves me running blind.
Then there's the silent shipwreck siren's song.

I wish that I,
Could get a little closer to,
The man in the lighthouse on the shore.
I wish that I,
Could get a little closer to,
The man in the lighthouse on the shore.

This sailor is tired,
And he longs to furl his sails.
I've sailed the seas,
And sometimes my faith has failed,
But never once did your light abandon me.
And now I come,
On penitent sails to Thee.

(Bridge)
Guide me through the straits, Lighthouse Man.
To your inner bay, promised land.
Keep me from the rocks on the shore.
Keep you light on me, 'til I moor.

He's turnin' on his light,
To let it shine on me,
So I can see the shore.
He's turnin' on his light,
To let it shine on me,
So I can see the shore.

I wasn't spiritually inspired when I wrote this. I just explored the concept and it, well, it has its merits.
