One-Eyed Doll – Brief Candle lyrics

Sleeping beauty
Thing of the past
Dreams like this weren't made to last
Open my eyes to find a hand is shaking me

Horror story
Thing of the past
Nightmares were not made to last
Closing my eyes to find a true awakening

Brief candle; burn away
I will die another day
Goblins in my passageway
Cannot keep this life at bay

War story
Thing of the past
Soldiers were not made to last
Ears full of gunfire and eyes full of blood
A casualty

Love story
Thing of the past
Innocence was not made to last
All that remains of him is a child inside of me

Brief candle; burn away
I will die another day
Goblins in my passageway
Cannot keep this life at bay

    Could this song be about an abortion?. Brief candle is a brilliant title if so, it dawned on me after I understood the lyrics. Her realization of the pregnancy and almost instantly knowing it can't go on "dreams like this weren't made to last..thing of the past..nightmares were not made to last..brief candle burn away, I will die another day, goblins in my passageway..cant keep this life at bay" The next verse speaks of a war story and the lost soldier (past relationship=war and dead solider=baby) Then the end says it all clearly "innocence was not made to last..all that remains of him is a child inside of me... brief candle burn away..." I was unsure if my thought on the meaning were correct but after reading the lyrics for clarity it does seem pretty probable this song is about an abortion, which regardless of right or wrong has to be talked about because it's a real issue, with real impacts, that can't be ignored.
