there’s too much darkness in here to see
and i’m so tired of misery
rolling thunder and driving rain
when every candle needs a flame
dont give me that bad news, I cant read it anymore
aint nothing but the sad blues piling up outside my door
trust is gone, but hope remains
when every candle needs a flame

when the ground drops out from beneath your shoes
because your family, they didnt stand by you
feels like a gut punch - it took me to my knees
even strangers came to comfort me
i’d rather take a long walk, if I'm gonna be alone
I cant listen to your hate talk
wont you come down off your throne
cause im no stranger - we share a name
and every candle needs a flame (INST BRIDGE)

the line is drawn now between you and me
bitter fruit grows on the tree
you took my picture out of the frame
every candle needs a flame
Oh Oh Oh Oh - please light my flame
