    Lighthouse
    Words and music (c) Roger Hammer


    Come by my way again
    Stop and we’ll have some tea
    Up where I’ve started living
    My lighthouse by the sea

    Not many find their way here
    They keep on shooting in the dark
    Truth is—there’s nothing in it
    Get yourself straight right from the start

       Oh you’ve got to get away
       Stuff just won’t leave you alone
       Ah got to get away
       To find a lighthouse for your own

    I never thought I’d be here
    Or that the choice would come along
    The world if full of pleasures
    You try to choose but get hooked on

       Oh you’ve got to get away
       Stuff just won’t leave you alone
       Ah got to get away
       To find a lighthouse for your own

    A morning looks much better
    Followed by an afternoon of dreams
    But night will just be blacker
    Without the lighthouse’s saving beams

    So here I have my island
    Clean across the sea
    Cause staying on the mainline
    Will not let you be free
