  • When darkness crowds Iceland's coast tonight
    (Maybe the waves will sound
    Maybe the aurora will whisper)
    They'll light the tower

    Beam healing dreams
    (The darkness may care
    Or may not)
    For a human kind of peace

    Not a monument to Yoko and John
    (Did they render their "we"
    For a greater cause?)
    It's a pulsing streaming beacon

    Guiding sea-legged sailors
    (Lovers of tempests
    Launched from rocky shores)
    Into a safe harbor

    "Peace is possible"
    (Whatever that means
    Whoever you are)
    "Just surrender, love"

    Happy Birthday, Yoko. I love you too.
