The lantern rolling stones
So, please, carry the lantern high. Me, in my sorry plight, You waiting ev'ry night. My face it turns a deathly pale, You're talking to me, through your veil, I hear you wail. So, please carry the lantern light. The servants sleep, The door's are barred. You hear the stopping of my heart-we never part. So, please carry the lantern high.5/5(1). The Lantern Lyrics. Some excellent guitar riffs from Keith Richards on both acoustic and electric foreshadow his layered work on Beggars Banquet and Let It Bleed, and drive a subtle, but slightly bluesy melody that is one of the album’s best. Lyrically, the song seems to have literary inspirations, not unlike some of Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd songs.
