A Lighthouse's Tale  Nickle Creek

I am a [Em]Lighthouse, [G]Worn by the weather and the [D]waves.
I keep my [Em]lamp lit, to [G]warn the sailors on their [D]way.
I'll te[Em]ll a story, pai[G]nt you a picture from my [D]past.
I was s[Em]o happy, but[G] joy in this life seldom l[D]asts.
I had a [Em]keeper, he [G]helped me warn the ships at [D]sea.
We had [Em]grown closer, 'til [G]his joy meant everything to [D]me.
He was [Em]to marry a gi[G]rl who shown with beauty and l[D]ight.
They lo[Em]ved each other, and [G]with me watched the sunsets into [D]nights.

Chorus:
And the [C]waves crashing a[Bm]round me, The [Bb]sand slips [C]out to [D]sea,
And the [C]winds that blow re[Bm]mind me of what has [Em]been[Fand wbat can A]never [D]be.

Verse:
She'd [Em]had to leave us; my [G]keeper, he prayed for a safe [D]return,
But w[Em]hen the night came, th[G]e weather to a raging storm had [D]turned.
He w[Em]atched her ship fight, but [G]in vain against the wild and terrible [D]wind,
And me [Em]so helpless, as [G]dashed against the rocks she met her [D]end.

Chorus:
And the [C]waves crashing a[Bm]round me, The [Bb]sand slips [C]out to [D]sea,
And the [C]winds that blow re[Bm]mind me of what has [Em]been[Fand wbat can A]never [D]be.

Verse:
Then on [Em]the next day, my [G]keeper found her washed up on the [D]shore.
He [Em]kissed her cold face, and [G]that they'd be together soon he [D]swore.
I sa[Em]w him crying, w[G]atched as he buried her in the [D]sand,
Then [Em]he climbed my tower, an[G]d off the edge of me he [D]ran.

Chorus:
And the [C]waves crashing a[Bm]round me, The [Bb]sand slips [C]out to [D]sea,
And the [C]winds that blow re[Bm]mind me of what has [Em]been[Fand wbat can A]never [D]be.

Verse:
I am a [Em]lighthouse, [G]worn by the weather and the [D]waves,
And th[Em]ough I'm empty, I [G]still warn the sailors on their [D]way.
