I'll build a house, of water
I'm searching high, and low
Underneath the waves
Where they hit the rocky shore
Out by the lighthouse

Heard nature say
"I'm sorry,
For stones and trees down below
For those who tumble in God's name
To an early grave
Into the sea and foam
Like ships tossed in a storm"
And I'm standing all alone
Out by the lighthouse

I'll build a house, of paper
Covered with words I could read
She had to teach me what to say
But every year we stayed
Out by the lighthouse

I'll build a house, so level
With 7 walls, long and true
The day we raised that roof up high
Unto the fading light
We sang the whole night through
No one needed proof
And I could see the moon
Out by the lighthouse
