Lighthouse Lyrics | Lilly Van Sickle

My heart is on a string 
Balancing above broken things
And though the caged bird sings
She always hides her cracked wings

And the lighthouse calls me to shore
The same place that I had left before

I never wanted any of this
I try not to lose myself in complications
I dream believed in fairy tales as a child
But I grew up and I found out

We will be loved if maybe not now
We will be loved somehow

My heart is on a string 
Inside of hands my eyes can’t see
I’m not a prophet in my town
And well I guess I know that now

And the lighthouse calls me to shore
The same place that I had left before

And I never wanted any of this
I try not to lose myself in complications
I dream believed in fairy tales as a child
But I grew up and I found out

We will be loved if maybe not now
We will be loved somehow

Ships weren’t made for shore
Tethered ropes tied to the port
We were made for so much more, so much more
And though the land can seem so safe
I understand that’s not my place
We were made to fight the waves 

And I never wanted any of this
I’ve tried not to lose myself in complications

I dream believed in fairy tales as a child
But we grow up and we found out

We will be loved if maybe not now
We will be loved 
We will be loved if maybe not now
We will be loved somehow

The lighthouse calls me to shore
The same place that I was left before
