I was walking on this lonely coast,
one clear and starry night,
And then all of a sudden,
I saw this beautiful red and white light.
I approached the tower oh so slowly,
and I did not make a sound.
For I was walking carefully,
on very uneven ground.
I opened the door and went right in,
as if I was a resident there.
I saw this winding stairway,
that seemed to lead to nowhere.
I marched right up the stairs,
I took two stairs as a time.
For when I finally got there,
it was surely worth the climb.
I was looking at a beautiful lens,
A First Order I do believe,
It was such a beautiful sight,
I really didn’t want to leave.
Then all of a sudden I did awake,
For it was only a dream,
But I’m sure it had to be real,
or at least, to me, it did seem.
So if you’re ever walking,
on a lonely coast some night.
Linger a while, let it soak in,
For you too might see the light.
