Lighthouse

"Did you hear?"
"Oh my dear!"
"That awful shipwreck?"  "Savage!"
"There's nothing left to salvage."
"The lighthouse keeper's daughter
Saved that stranger from the water!"

 

 

 

 

Men leave.  The Stranger saved from the shipwreck, dark secrets in his past, tells Leda he has to go.

 

Now once again I turn my back
On all I need and all I lack,
Because of something that pursues me
To cherish and accuse me...
It's the silver mermaid on her silver throne,
And she claims me for her own.
The sea will always claim her own!

Like a dream that is lost
In the caverns of your mind.

While loved ones suffer
A wilderness of pain?
