The power lines went out
And I am all alone
But I don't really care at all
Not answering my phone
All the games you played
The promises you made
Couldn't finish what you started
Only darkness still remains

Lost sight
Couldn't see
When it was you and me

Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
I'm beginning to see the light
Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
But I think I'll be alright

Been black and blue before
There's no need to explain
I am not the jaded kind
Playback's such a waste
You're invisible
Invisible to me
My wish is coming true
Erase the memory of your face


Lost sight
Couldn't see
When it was you and me

Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
I'm beginning to see the light
Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
But I think I'll be alright

One day
You will wake up
With nothing but "you're sorrys"
And someday
You will get back
Everything you gave me

Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
I'm beginning to see the light
Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
But I think I'll be alright

    Thisis about Cassidee [leadsinger] getting over a relationship that just ended... A lot of the songs this band does are about realtionships.

    The meaning of this song is someone who just got screwed over in a relationship and in the beginning, they were broken apart over it but now... They're starting to see that maybe it was for the best... Even tho they know that someday that person will realize what they lost. Because they obviously never knew what they had when they were together. ♥

    It's mostly likely about how you could actually stay strong when you know you are left out and your soul is slowly tearing apart.
