Devil's Lighthouse

This song is by The Correspondents and appears on the album Puppet Loosely Strung (2014).

You talk of turbulent seas. Above the waves is where you want to be.

So I'm back in this place again
If I see you I know what I will do
Because I want to make you mine so
Every single time we come here
We are arm in arm

(On and on until the break of dawn)
Unobtainable you sitting at the bar, I stare hard
You don't have a clue
I've got a plan for you.

I've been watching you for a while
Noting things that make you smile
Mostly bits about work and going out

Then I hear you talk about seas at night
(I have no doubt)
That is where you'd most like to be

You talk of turbulent seas. Above the waves is where you want to be.

So I wrack my brain, hatched a plan
Source a name, meet the man
Plot the route, fill the boot
Head back to the bar in the brand new suit

I down my drink, crunch the ice
Stand up to you (you look nice)
Wait a while for you to smile
Then ask you to come to the Devil's Isle with me.

I've got the keys to the Devil's Lighthouse.

Drive... Deep in to the night (we'll)
See... That tower's turning light (I'll)
Strive... To make your dream come true (we'll)
Be... Alone, just me and you.

You talk of turbulent seas.
Above the waves (go on for days) is where you want to be.
