No asking more than I could bear,
Now that I'm standing in the middle,
In the darkness...
With the little candle in my hand,
These shades around me, they giggle
At the way I cannot find my way back,
To my home.
They're waiting in the silence,
Just like the spooky spiders,
They wanna grab my soul, oh...

But I am alive,
As long as the candle lights,
And I'm not blind,
Though I got wrapped up
In the black coat of the night.
I won't give my life up
As long as the candle lights.

No waiting, I'm running along,
Unaware where I am running to,
I feel the wire touches my neck and,
I cannot breathe no more...
But it won't be enough to take over my soul,
Cos I'm gonna die another day...

Cause I am alive,
As long as the candle lights,
And I'm not blind,
Though I got wrapped up
In the black coat of the night.
I won't give my life up
As long as the candle lights.

The little fire getting to be gone,
But its last sparks are showing me
The way back home,
And I'm moving, moving, moving on.

Cause I am alive,
As long as the candle lights,
And I'm not blind,
Though I got wrapped up
In the black coat of the night.
I won't give my life up
As long as the candle lights. [comments] => 1 [counter] => 226 [topic] => 63 [informant] => Alexa_Bachtel [notes] => [ihome] => 0 [alanguage] => english [acomm] => 0 [haspoll] => 0 [pollID] => 0 [score] => 23 [ratings] => 5 [editpoem] => 1 [associated] => [topicname] => hbadday )
As Long As The Candle Lights

No running away, no hiding,
No asking more than I could bear,
Now that I'm standing in the middle,
In the darkness...
With the little candle in my hand,
These shades around me, they giggle
At the way I cannot find my way back,
To my home.
They're waiting in the silence,
Just like the spooky spiders,
They wanna grab my soul, oh...

But I am alive,
As long as the candle lights,
And I'm not blind,
Though I got wrapped up
In the black coat of the night.
I won't give my life up
As long as the candle lights.

No waiting, I'm running along,
Unaware where I am running to,
I feel the wire touches my neck and,
I cannot breathe no more...
But it won't be enough to take over my soul,
Cos I'm gonna die another day...

Cause I am alive,
As long as the candle lights,
And I'm not blind,
Though I got wrapped up
In the black coat of the night.
I won't give my life up
As long as the candle lights.

The little fire getting to be gone,
But its last sparks are showing me
The way back home,
And I'm moving, moving, moving on.

Cause I am alive,
As long as the candle lights,
And I'm not blind,
Though I got wrapped up
In the black coat of the night.
I won't give my life up
As long as the candle lights.
