'Light a Candle'

'Light a Candle'
last night I was working on a cover

before I went to bed

with a rising star I'll sing be singing

some-one else's song in duet

 

this morning when I woke up

i did feel rather sad

so I wrote a new one in my own words

feelin' better now instead:





















 






oh I hope that you can hear me

sweet summer moon of mine

forever's lastin' way too long yeah

we both don't have the time

 

to live our lives in dreams

while livin' on our shrine

forever's just too long

sweet summer moon of mine

 

centuries they have passed

and today pass way too fast

I am scared that I'll get lost

that forever... might not last

 

the only thing I know

is the only thing I feel

lonely captain on this ship

all alone behind the wheel

 

ent. lead solo

 

oh I hope that you can hear me

sweet summer moon of mine

forever's just too long

we both don't have the time

to live our lives in dreams

sweet summer moon of mine

 

short oboe solo

 

oh baby I can hear you

I feel the light you shine

cannot see you it's ok though

oooh bright summer sun of mine

 

forever does not last

at least not in our time

forever is too long

sweet summer sun of mine

 

me:  "oh I hope that you can hear me..."

she: "ooooh shine my love just shine"

me:  "I need you babe around me"

she: "ooooh now is not the time"

me:  "where are you I can't see you"

she: "one day you will be mine"

me:  "oh I wish that you could hear me"

she: "light us a candle on our shrine"

 

together:

 

centuries they have passed

and won't come back no more

too scared that we'll get lost

in pain of open sore

 

the only thing I know

is that I first must heal

to be related to our ship

and captain behind the wheel

 

she: "sweet summer sun of mine..."

me:  "oh baby I can hear you..."

she: "I need your light around me"

me:  "I'm with you all the time"

[together]

I close my eyes to see ya

and put your hand in mine

the light that we both shine

lights that candle on our shrine

 

lead git solo

 

I close my eyes to see ya

and put your hand in mine

the liiiiight that we both shiiiine

lights the candle on our shrine ...

lead git & oboe solo fading to end
