Mallory Knox and Lighthouse (song and lyrics)

And I’m so tired
Of these buried lies,
We spoke about a thousand times
When all your friends stuck by your side
Turning backs and minds,
Whilst all this time, you’ve been stabbing mine
And cut and dry at all my pride
But there’s a scar you’ll never find
Right behind my eye.

[spolier]

No sleep tonight,
A whistle from the wind will haunt your mind
But they’re all outside
Swimming to the shore

I’m the lighthouse in the dark
I’d shine a light on every single soul that weeps
That you have torn
I’m the lighthouse in the dark
Directing all the ships that carry all the broken hearts
That you have torn apart!

And I’ll never hide,
I’ve only ever wanted love to bridge this gap of mine
But I’ll never ever seem to reach the other side
So what do you want?
What do you want from me and need from me,
To make you feel, to make you feel alive?

No sleep tonight,
A whistle from the wind will haunt your mind
They’re all outside
Swimming to the shore!

I’m the light house in the dark
I’d shine a light on every single soul that weeps
That you have torn
I’m the lighthouse in the dark
Directing all the ships that carry all the broken hearts
That you have torn apart!

(I’ll find the words in time, that light the way home… x4)
Find a soul,
Wish I could,
Touch your soul,
Light it up,
See the path – it’s time to go!

Find a soul,
Wish I could,
Touch your soul,
Light it up,
See the path – And watch you go!

(I’ll find the words in time, that light the way home… x1)
Find a soul,
Wish I could,
Touch your soul,
Light it up,
See the path…

I’m the light house in the dark
I’d shine a light on every single soul that weeps
That you’ve torn
I’m the lighthouse in the dark
Directing all the ships that carry all the broken hearts
That you have torn apart!

Lighthouse Letterbox and Notepaper

Images on the cover of this popular letterbox are lighthouses framed in blues and shades of white, reflecting sky and sea.  The interior is lined with a dark blue which extends one of the shades of blue in the cover to the interior.

Size:  The letterbox measures just 8¾ by 6¼ inches.  Its size permits carrying in your handbag, making it easy to use when you have wait times at doctor’s offices, carpooling or while children play in a park.
Construction:  Sturdy —it can handle a lot of usage: carrying it about, frequent openings and closings as you revisit your treasured notes and cards and/or retrieve notes and cards for sending.
Practical:  Something like a mailbag—it is just one piece—and something like a briefcase.  When closed, its surface becomes a writing desk.

The Best Seat on the Planet – for exploring Victoria & Southern Vancouver Island from John veale

In this video you get to see an aerial view of Carmanah Point lighthouse.

Mr. Veale says:

Join me for another flight over some of the most beautiful country anywhere. We depart Nanaimo Airport (CYCD) for a flight of an hour and twenty minutes (Edited down to nineteen) We fly over some of the southern BC ‘Gulf’ Islands to the Saanich Peninsula, over Victoria International Airport (CYYJ) and follow the shoreline down the peninsula and around Victoria, BC’s Capital city. We continue NW along the coast and above the Strait of Juan de Fuca for approximately 90 miles or so. We then turn inland over Vancouver Island and follow tidal Nitinat Lake to its head and then on further to the head of Cowichan Lake. (Some very beautiful video here) From here we fly on to our point of departure, Nanaimo Airport. Enjoy, as we once again take in the view from the ‘Best Seat on the Planet” our Bushby Mustang ll C-GAIF. (Forgive me, I’m biased. :-)) (If you’ve enjoyed the video and would like to assist a little in the production, a small addition to the Tip Jar would help offset some of my flying costs and be much appreciated. Either way, enjoy your ride in the right seat! The view is superb) Questions? Contact me at jpveale@shaw.ca
