Lighthouse by AnimeVSReality Lighthouse by AnimeVSReality
Take what you need while there's time
The city will be earth in a short while
If I'm not mistaken it's been in flames
You and I will escape to the seaside

There is a storm in the distance
The wind breathing warning of its imminence
There is a lighthouse five hundred yards down
You and I will be safe there

There is a girl who haunts that lighthouse
She saved me, I was swimming
So young I almost drowned
Under the water she sang a story
Of losing her lover
She calls a warning

Love, you are foolish, you're tired
Your sleeplessness makes you a liar
The city is burning
The ocean is turning
Our only chance is the lighthouse

Her lover was a sailor
She went and she waited there
The door locked from the outside
Lover never arrived so she sings there
Soft as a siren luring the ships off their course, how alarming

We went in, we climbed up and looked out
The door locked from the outside
Three ghosts in a lighthouse.


"Lighthouse" by The Hush Sound.


Had this idea in my head ever since I heard the song for the first time. Just now decided to give it a go, even though I'm terrible at backgrounds. I hope I didn't mess it up too badly...

EDIT: I added smoke over the fire. I'd forgotten about the smoke completely because I did this while procrastinating for way too long on some Web Markup and Scripting homework. Thanks for reminding me, *TameraAli! :heart:

Ilikeit.

The background is pretty decent, though I'm a little confused as to what the red coloring is; is it just sky coloring or firelight orr...

yeah.. Otherwise though, it looks good.

It's supposed to be fire on a city. From that 'The city is burning' bit in the song. /fail

Yeah, the ghost face was part of my idea. Ohohoho

ah. I think it's just the contrast between the green and the red that makes it look kind of messed up. And, the absence of smoke clouds.
