Whitby Harbour, N Yorks, UK
from the album Pawn Hearts by Van der Graaf Generator
Lighthouses might house the key but can I reach the door?
I want to walk on the sea so that I may better find a shore;
but how can I ever keep my feet dry?
I scan the horizon,
I must keep my eyes on all parts of me.
Looking back on the years it seems that I have lost my way:
lLike a dog in the night I have run to a manger,
now I am the stranger I stay in.
All of the grief I have seen leaves me chasing solitary peace;
But I hold experience in my head.
I’m too close to the light,.
I don’t think I see right, for I blind me.
