The Incredible String Band

The Incredible String Band - My Father Was A Lighthouse Keeper

rate me

Lying on the beach with desire

Rocking to the music of the waves

I was in despair

My heart needed repair

My lover had lied to me but

I was bored by what I saw there

Why? Why! Why?

My father was a lighthouse keeper

Watched the waves getting steeper

Watched the ships going down

In cadillacs they sailed with the tide

Beneath the pier the sea she stroked the night

I rocked a little then

I moved my body again

My lover kissed my lips

I was digging what I saw there

Why! Why? Why!

My father was a lighthouse keeper

Watched the waves getting steeper

Watched the ships going down

We watched the days slip by and the stars explode

And we watched them once again

Oh the laughter rose a cheer

Oh the laughter so nice to hear

Oh the laughter so good and free

Oh the laughter so nice to see

I lay among the shells and coke cans

In my lover

All the people were eating

And smiling sadly in their big cars

My father looked down from his lighthouse

He saw it all he knew it all

Then he laughed a little

Oh so pretty

Oh so easy
