LIGHTHOUSE

 

 

This is one of my favorites from the album and the song that took the longest to finish.  I began this song for my assignment for a hero-themed song for my sync songwriting class.  Lighthouse is a call-to-arms to rally the hero in the seemingly most unlikely one - yourself.  Sometimes things get so tough and you wanna run, you want someone to save you but sometimes there's no left to call on and YOU are the one! The song began with one track, then went to another producer and finally ended up with my longtime producer and friend Ted Jacobs, who has produced most of my albums.  He's my musical soulmate ;)  It was a long, worthwhile process tweaking the music production and getting all the vocals just so. The track was finally completed & lifted to a higher level with the addition of Vas Angelov and his awesome rapping skillz!

 

LIGHTHOUSE

I won’t pretend that I’m alright

Not sure I have the will to fight 

But there’s a storm that's coming our way

Can we find the courage to stay

 

Where will we run

There's no one to save us, who’ll save us

Nowhere to turn

So find the strength that’s inside us

I'm counting on you and you on me too

Let's stand our ground - gotto make shelter now

Be a lighthouse to all

 

Let's come to life 

Let’s look alive and shine a light

Let's come to life

Let’s look alive - gotto make things right

Let's come to life

Let’s look alive and be the light

Let's come to life

Let’s look alive, hey look alive

 

I know we may not look the part

But maybe we have a hero's heart

Feels like we’re breaking everyday

We’re letting all the dark parts fall away

 

Our day has come

It’s time to rise up and show up

We are he ones

Change the world that's around us

They’re counting on me & you

The whole world is too

Let's stand our ground - gotto make shelter now

Be a lighthouse to everyone

 

Let's come to life 

Let’s look alive and shine a light

Let's come to life

Let’s look alive - gotto make things right

Let's come to life

Let’s look alive and be the light

Let's come to life

Let’s look alive, hey look alive

 

[instrumental]

 

Time to look alive
Hold on to your faith and just take a dive
Ready for your blessings
Steady I know it will arive
Feel alive, show a bunch of love
Escape the lies..
That’s the only way, that me and you, can keep hope alive
Make a change, stand tall, keep your head up
Living life in the fast lane, it kinda sped up
I’m fed up,of trying to get my bread up
Get up! Time to make a change, for the better!

 

Let's stand our ground - gotto make shelter now

Be a lighthouse to everyone that’s lost

 

Let's come to life 

Let’s look alive and shine a light

Let's come to life

Let’s look alive - gotto make things right

Let's come to life

Let’s look alive and be the light

Let's come to life

Let’s look alive, hey look alive
