Beirut – A Candle's Fire lyrics

Oh light a candle's fire, carries a good name
What would you ask a camp fire, it's scares'd be just the same
And you, you had it all along, and endless need for games
Just don't forget a candle's fire, is only just a flame

I, it's certain from a far, have failed to pull my weight
But you were light, you travelled through the fog, to arrive at our front
Tonight we rest beside the fire, a smile upon your face
Just don't forget a candle's fire is only just a flame

If I had known not to carry on that way,
It wouldn't show in the creases of your face
If you should go but you carry on my name
Just let it blow, in the fog on Bishop's Lane
