He seduces me with sweetness
Woos me with sunshine
Takes me to the ocean
And speaks to me words divine

I protect my ego
With sassy attitude
To my true feelings
I barely elude

Lighthouse, light the way
My heart’s in darkness
Held at bay
Lighthouse, light the way
Guide me to his love, I pray

I broke his heart some time ago
Hate to admit, I regret it so
Fearful of falling hard and fast
Afraid our love wouldn’t last
But these feelings haven’t passed


He’s not giving up
He won’t be dissuaded
How can he be so bold, when I am so afraid?

Here he is next to me
My heart’s pleading, “Set me free!”
He’s telling me to seize the day
So please, light the way!
