about

Picture an island, a young man at the shoreline beneath a lighthouse. A voice calling out across the sea. 'Where is my love? Where is my love?'. He sets sail full of hope to find his love, his life, his reason-to-be but a raging storm sweeps in from the ocean. The lighthouse fails and the young man loses his way. Fear and confusion take over. Thrashed and battered, convinced his love is lost, he rails against the storm but its darkness rushes into him. A single flicker of light still glows amidst the darkness. Enraged by the futility of hope when all is clearly lost the young man leans into the guttering flame and blows. It. Out....

lyrics

There is a light house with all the lights out
A quiet place but lonely
Wind from the south came and blew the light out
So I got lost on my way to your love

Did I wrap that darkness around me
Like a suit of armour?
Got so alone got a heart like a stone
So I got lost on my way to your love

There were times when I would wonder
through oh, endless diary pages
If you were even out there at all
in these dark, dark ages

So in the distance always the distance
There is a glimmer of maybe
Opened my mouth and blew that candle out
So you got lost on yoru way to your love
