The Lyrics Are Below


The Lantern

By Jagger/Richards

We, on our present life

Knew that the stars were right

That if you are the first to go

You'll leave a sign to let me kno

Tell me so

Please, carry the Lantern lights


You crossed the sea of night

Free from the spell of fright

Your cloak it is a spirit shroud

You'll wake me in my sleeping hours

Like a cloud

So, please, carry the Lantern high


Me, in my sorry plight

You waiting ev'ry night

My face it turns a deathly pale

You're talking to me, through your veil

I hear you wail

So, please carry the Lantern light


The servants sleep

The door's are barred

You hear the stopping of my heart-we never part

So, please carry the Lantern high
