Have I become, a target that some people can't resist? My flaws have become a greater risk If my name is a synonym to love and happiness then why am I bombarded with distress? My old friends, haven't seen them since I don't know when But I can send them a signed 8 by 10 My sweetheart, she understands why I'm away but still it gets harder every day
But it's my delight, to sing all night till the sun comes up again
After all my cross isn't hard to bear it is heavy, I am weak, but you are there There are times when I am down and feel undone You pursue me like I am your only son My old flaws you've overlooked and put to rest They're farther than the East is from the West
But it's my delight, to sing all night till the sun comes up again Yes it's my delight, to share a flicker of your light Just a ray of hope to a friend
I've spent about 24 hours in a flying J truck stop I haven't had a shower and 'bout to drop It really doesn't matter if we make it all up
If it wasn't for the lighthouse where would my life be? On a ship bound for nowhere on an unforgiving sea I thank God If it wasn't for the lighthouse where would my life be? On a ship bound for nowhere on an unforgiving sea I thank God for the lighthouse I thank God for the light.
