Jars Of Clay – Five Candles lyrics

A promise or a dare
I would jump if I knew you'd catch me
Staring over the edge
I can't tell if you'll be here for me

I close my eyes and make a wish
Turn out the lights and take a breath
Pray that when the wick is burned
You would say that it's all about love


Chorus:


You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open
You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open


You were never here


I remember you said
Love was more than your good intentions
Empty boxes on the floor
Things I never asked you for
I pray that when the wick is burned
You would say that it's all about love


[chorus]


I can't see the promise of
Excuses you fall upon
I pray to God not holding on
To things you've left undone


[chorus x 2]


You were there when i
You were there when i
You were there when I needed you
