Lighthouse Song (Jeff)

I’m a little bit confused—why here?
It’s the last place I would look

And I’m a little bit amused, my dear,
that you still read me like a book

The lighthouse is nearing, the wheelhouse keeps steering

And they’re a little bit bemused,
but we're all wearing a disguise

And though you feel a bit abused again,
you’re a sight for sorry eyes

The lanterns are burning, the phantom’s returning
A sad moon is waning, no time for explaining

Down the rabbit hole again, we don’t know which way to run.
But we’ll come out the other end.

I hope that they’ll make it, she’ll fix it — he’ll break it.
I’m a little bit amused, my dear -
can you still read me like a book?

The lighthouse seems nearer the picture comes clearer

There was never any more inception than there is now,

Nor any more youth or age than there is now,

And will never be any more perfection than there is now,

Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now.
