You're amazing but you're taking too much time
I've only got six candles left
And I'm trying to keep this off my mind
It's getting darker but it's the way they make me feel
They try to fill my head with questions
They all doubt you but I know you're real

If it takes time then I'll be patient
Know that I will still believe
I'll take your hand and hold it tightly
Cause I know you'll carry me

Take me whole, Take me in, Take these last six candles
And when I'm tired, and wearing thin
Give me the strength to carry on
Here I am, see my hands, take these last six candles
We're moving on, we'll keep, keep, moving on

And I'm so thankful for every breath I take
There's not a moment that goes by
I waste wiping tears out of my crying face
Don't look so sad, you've missed the point
I'm still so glad I knew you against the odds
I'll take my chances and burn this candle through you

If it takes time then I'll be patient
Know that I will still believe
I'll take your hand and hold it tightly
Cause I know you'll carry me

Take me whole, Take me in, Take these last six candles
And when I'm tired, and wearing thin
Give me the strength to carry on
Here I am, see my hands, take these last six candles
We're moving on, we'll keep, keep, moving on

If I could ever see the way you understand me
When no one else can see it
I know you surround me

I'll be the one who listens only when you tell me
Not walking but running, not talking, yellin

And they might never understand why I do what I do
But I can only speak my mind
And what I feel is true
I'll take a vow to be the only one who stands if it takes
All that I am, I will be standing, there, there

Take me whole, Take me in, Take these last six candles
And when I'm tired, and wearing thin
Give me the strength to carry on
Here I am, see my hands, take these last six candles
We're moving on, we'll keep, keep, moving on

    Sorry to those guys and girls who think this song is about love. This song is a actually a religious/ christian song. Trevor likened his life to a candle. He gave that candle to God. In short, this wants to tell that we must give our lives to God. The singer hopes that people will never understand what he did or why he is doing it (and they might never understand why I do what I do), but still he will keep on moving for the Lord.
    That is the real meaning of the song, and I know it becoz I am also a Baptist like Trevor Mcnevan, vocalist of fm static.
    I love the song.

    Hmmm. I'm not religious, but still, this song caught me off guard. I dunno, but I think the writer dedicated this song to God. And everytime I listen to this song, my problems flashed in my mind, but then it wipes away because of Him.
    I'll never surrender, because You gave me the strength to carry on. I know that others doubt You, but I know You're real. I'll be patient and still believes that You exist. Thanks, God :)
