Rated: E · Lyrics · Romance/Love · #1750573
I can see where I’ve been and where I want to be; dark chains are gone and now I'm free.
The Flame of a Candle

Like the flame of a candle,
you light up my world,
dispelling the shadows
that around me swirled.
I can see where I've been
and where I want to be.
The dark chains are gone
and now I am free.

(Refrain)
Lost in the darkness of each forlorn day,
with no light to guide me, I'd lost my way.
Your love is a beacon. When I go astray,
the flame in your heart always shows me the way.


Like the flame of a candle,
I feel myself melt
'neath the warmth of your love.
Feelings I've felt
since the first time I saw you.
I've always known
that with you in my heart
I won't be alone.

(Refrain)
Lost in the darkness of each forlorn day,
with no light to guide me, I'd lost my way.
Your love is a beacon. When I go astray,
the flame in your heart always shows me the way.


Like the flame of a candle,
that flickers, at times,
doubts can creep in;
insecurity climbs.
The strength of your hand
and the love in your eyes
reassures me my thoughts
are no more than lies.

Like the flame of a candle,
that keeps burning bright
you've brought the sunrise
and ended the night.
I now walk in the sun,
gone are all my fears,
my heart full of hope,
no more sorrow or tears.

(Refrain)
Lost in the darkness of each forlorn day,
with no light to guide me, I'd lost my way.
Your love is a beacon. When I go astray,
the flame in your heart always shows me the way.


I can see where I've been and where I want to be.
The dark chains are gone and now I am free.
