Sailing towards the shore
In your ship, out at sea
You saw her standing there
A lighthouse shining free

Claimed her light for yourself
For the life of your ship
In your pride you didn't believe
You would one day take the hit

As her light waned amidst cries
For her ruins you did not care
As you sailed away in your ship
She was not in good repair

One day her light faded out
While her feelings you did mock
In your pride you did not see
Your ship crash on the rocks

Now her light shines free
Brighter than ever before
She belongs to no one
Though she guides another to shore
