THE CRYING CANDLE

MIDNIGHT HAS COME AND I WAS WITH NOBODY
IT FEELS QUITE COLD AND LONELY
THE CRYING LITTLE CANDLE KEPT ME COMPANY
AS I WATCHED IT’S TINY RED LIGHT VERY SADLY

I STARE ON ITS WHITE AND MOIST BODY
THEN I STARTED TO NOTICE SOMETHING FROM WITHIN
AS IF THE CANDLE WAS AS SAD AS ME
I SAW THE TEARS COMING DOWN FROM ITS EYES

AND I WATCH IT FELL DOWN FROM MY DESK
AS IF THE CANDLE FELT MY EMOTIONS
AS IF IT FELT THE HEAVY FEELING IN MY HEART
FEELING THAT I DID NOT KNOW WHERE IT START

I STARE ON IT EVEN MORE CLOSELY
TRYING TO LISTEN TO WHAT ITS TELLING ME
AND NI HEARD IT SAID TO ME
LITTLE CHILD, PLEASE DON’T WEEP ON ME

FOR THE WORLD IS FULL OF HAPPINESS AND GLEE
YOU STILL HAVE TOMORROW TO LOOK THROUGH AND SEE
DRY YOUR EYES NOW AND SET YOUR HEART FREE
YOU CAN START ALL OVER AGAIN UNLIKE ME

THEN I STARTED TO REALIZE
THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO COMPROMISE
EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE CLEAR NOW
IN THIS WORLD THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO SEE

THERE ARE SO MUCH TO BE HAPPY ABOUT
THE FLUFFY CLOUDS IN THE SKY
THE LITTLE HUMMING BIRDS THAT FLY
THE STARS AND THE MOON IN THE VELVET SKY

THEN THE LITTLE WHITE CRYING CANDLE TOLD ME
I AM ABOUT TO GO NOW MY CHILD
FOR MY FIRE IS NOW KISSING THE GROUND
TELLING ME GOOD BYE AND CONTINUE WHAT YOU
FOUND
