lyrics

CANDLES

If first we face forever, on life's eternal stage
The flickers in the fault lines are dawned upon with age
The hand that may be dealt us belies what we deserve
No sterner test of virtue, of courage we reserve

This world pulls the ground from under you
Where no thoughts or words nor songs will do
As we stand tall for those we know and knew
For our tryst with life surrenders all to soon

The paths that you have chosen, the lives you could have lead
An open-ended ending for the paths you sought to tread
From nascency, through nurture, until the final shout
A candle by the year until your candles all go out

This world pulls the ground from under you
Where no thoughts or words nor songs will do
As we stand tall for those we know and knew
For our tryst with life surrenders all to soon

This world steals the ground from under you
Leaves a void where once-dreamt dreams fell through
Still we stand tall for those we know and knew
For our tryst with life surrenders all to soon
