about

Lighthouses have always fascinated me. I mean... wow. What an invention. And what a simple concept to have stood the test of time despite all the new technology these days. They are just as necessary today as they were a hundred years ago. And it is true of life as well. When we are attempting to navigate rough waters and storms... we need light. And not just any light. I wrote this song for a sweet friend who needed a lighthouse. However, as I was writing this piece I realized just how thankful I am to God for placing certain people in my life to shine HIS light for me along the way, as well.

lyrics

If eyes are windows to the soul
then all your curtains must be closed
you're somewhere else still fighting when you've accepted defeat
and from where you've let me in it looks so tiring

Let me be your lighthouse in the storm
on your side in the distance so
you know you're not alone
i know this doubt like the rain
makes it hard to see
but when you're almost there
I'll be there too
shining

if you've got something to say
i've got time
if you've got battle scars
let me show you mine
if you need somebody I want to be somebody for you
i know you'd do this on your own if it were up to you

Let me be your lighthouse in the storm
on your side in the distance so
you know you're not alone
i know this doubt like the rain
makes it hard to see
but when you're almost there
I'll be there too
shining

and when you learn to shine all on your own
you can stand by me and the world will know

we will be the lighthouse in the storm
standing tall in the distance
so no one is alone
cause doubt like the rain
makes it hard to see
but sometimes all it takes is a light shining
