Hold your face a little closer to the candle.
I wanna see you here by the light.
I've been lost and it's more than I can handle.
I've been afraid for my very life.

They try to find me but I was always missing.
They try to hurt me but they found me to hard.
They try to perswade me but I wouldn't listen.
They try to degrade me but I was on my god.

Hold your face a little closer to the candle.
I wanna see you here by the light.
I've been lost and it's more than I can handle.
I've been afraid for my very life.

One for the children, crying in the wilderness.
One for the father broken on the weal.
Shane by his happiness and hell by the wonder
And ready to compromise make another deal.

Hold your face a little closer to the candle.
I wanna see you here by the light.
I've been lost and it's more than I can handle.
I've been afraid for my very life.

The time has come now and we can see now the candle shining.
The has come now, yes, we can breath now, the sun is shining.

Hold your face a little closer to the candle.
I wanna see you here by the light.
I've been lost and it's more than I can handle.
I've been afraid for my very life.

The heart going tap by tap,
The mighty use of stand ions.
Spurn in the ether and ready to fly.
Let you in bosom easy pray for religion.
The hand on the white stick, go blindly to blind.

Hold your face a little closer to the candle.
I wanna see you here by the light.
I've been lost and it's more than I can handle.
I've been afraid for my very life.

Hold your face a little closer to the candle.
I wanna see you here by the light.
I've been lost and it's more than I can handle.
I've been afraid for my very life.

Hold your face a little closer to the candle.
I wanna see you here by the light.
I've been lost and it's more than I can handle.
I've been afraid for my very life...
