“The Lantern” by The Rolling Stones
Composers: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards
We in 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 know, tell me so.
So if you are the first to go you’ll
Leave a sign to let me know oh tell me so.
Please carry the lantern lights.
You cross the sea of night
Free from the spell of fright
Your cloak it is a spirit it shroud you
Wake me in my sleeping hours like a cloud.
Please carry the lantern high
Me in my sorry plight
You waiting every night
My face it turns a deathly pale, you’re
Talking to me through your veil. I hear you wail.
Please carry the lantern light.
The servants sleep, the door’s are barred. You hear the stopping
Of my heart.
Please carry the lantern high.
