Verse

I don’t have any answers, though I'm searching for them all

I look for the guidance I need, but no one sees the fall

Now I'm out here on my own, wondering when this was the norm

When did I become so used to being alone

I made myself believe that I didn’t need anybody

But find myself hoping for someone to come save me

I no longer feel at home, in a house that’s not my own

I've got to get out of here

 

Chorus

So, I'll run to the lighthouse

The place I feel safe

If I can’t save me, then I'll hide away

I'll fend off the darkness

Fight away the pain

The scars will remind me, everything’s ok

If you see me, don’t turn away

I'll likely need help

Though I'd never admit it to you

 

Post Chorus:

Oh, lighthouse shelter me

Oh, the only place I feel free

 

Instrumental

 

Verse:

And I'll keep pretending, like I'm alright

As long as you don’t see, what’s on the inside

I feel as though no one cares, though I know its untrue

But I can’t help the thoughts, that run through my head

There is one truth that I believe, that I know is real

And it’s the fact that if I were to fall, no one would hear

The only one who ever hears me cry in the night

Is the darkness surrounding me on all sides

 

Chorus

So, I'll run to the lighthouse

The place I feel safe

If I can’t save me, then I'll hide away

I'll fend off the darkness

Fight away the pain

The scars will remind me, everything’s ok

If you see me, don’t turn away

I'll likely need help

Though I'd never admit it to you

 

Post Chorus:

Oh, lighthouse shelter me

Oh, the only place I feel free

Free

 

 

Bridge:

Walking on the beach at night

Holding myself together

Why can’t I feel alive

Why don’t I feel a thing!

My emotions have left me

Without a single tear

I can’t help it

They just don’t seem real

Even if I was saved

Would I even know

I'd likely push it away

Cuz that’s all I've ever known

I don’t know any better

 

Chorus

So, I'll run to the lighthouse

The place I feel safe

If I can’t save me, then I'll hide away

I'll fend off the darkness

Fight away the pain

The scars will remind me, everything’s ok

If you see me, don’t turn away

I'll likely need help

Though I'd never admit it to you

 

Post Chorus:

Oh, lighthouse shelter me

Oh, the only place I feel free

Oh, lighthouse shelter me
