"The Lantern" lyrics

The Lantern

We
On our present life
Knew
That the stars were right

That if you are
The first to go
You'll leave a sign
To let me know
Tell me so

Please
Carry the lantern lights

You
Crossed the sea of night
Free
From the spell of fright

Your cloak it is
A spirit shroud
You'll wake me in
My sleeping hours
Like a cloud

So, please
Carry the lantern high

Me
In my sorry plight
You
Waiting every night

My face it turns
A deathly pale
You're talking to me
Through your veil
I hear you wail

So, please
Carry the lantern light

The servants sleep
The doors are barred
You hear the stopping
Of my heart
We never part

So, please
Carry the lantern high
