the light on the bay lyrics – chris de burgh

last night, i saw it there,
shining in the dark again,
the light that all men seem to fear;
they say that sailors were drowning in the bay,
and people kept away,
waiting for the riches that a wreck would bring,
when the morning comes,
and now the ghost of blackbeard walks again,
to haunt the ones who would not hear the pain;
“help me —
help me —“;
i took the old path down, down to where the graveyard lay,
the place i knew when i was young,
they say that blackbeard had hidden precious stones,
amongst the ancient bones,
so i set off to the darkness down below,
by the candle glow,
t’was then i heard the voices, saw a light,
and started on the journey of my life;
