Nickel Creek - "The Lighthouse's Tale"

I was driving to work and the lyrics of this song created a story in my mind. Think of Harry as the lighthouse, Ron as the "keeper" and Hermione as the girl. It's quite a tearjerker, this one. Makes me want to write some fanfic.


I am a lighthouse, worn by the weather and the waves
I keep my lamp lit, to warn the sailors on their way
I'll tell a story, paint you a picture from my past
I was so happy, but joy in this life seldom lasts

I had a keeper, he helped me warn the ships at sea
We had grown closer, 'till his joy meant everything to me
And he was to marry, a girl who shone with beauty and light
And they loved each other, and with me watched the sunsets into night

And the waves crashing around me
The sand slips out to sea
And the winds that blow remind me
Of what has been, and what can nevermore be

She'd had to leave us, keeper he prayed for her safe return
But when the night came, the weather to a raging storm had turned
He watched her ship fight, but in vain against a wild and terrible wave
In me, so helpless, dashed against the rocks she met her end

And the waves crashing around me
The sand slips out to sea
And the winds that blow remind me
Of what has been, and what can nevermore be

Then on the next day, the keeper found her washed up on the shore
He kissed her cold face, that they'd be together soon he swore
I saw him crying, watched as he buried her in the sand
And then he climbed my tower, and off the edge of me he ran

And the waves crashing around me
The sand slips out to sea
And the winds that blow remind me
Of what has been, and what can nevermore be

I am a lighthouse, worn by the weather and the waves
And though I am empty, I still warn the sailors on their way
