The White Tie Affair – Candle lyrics

I took a ride on a February morning
Just getting over it and dealing with the mourning
I started thinking out loud
I'm so sick and tired of being sick and tired

My baby's flying off the edge of the road
She's sayin' "I'm so sorry about that note"
That left me all alone
But I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired

Somebody turn the lights on
Somebody tell me what's wrong
I'd be lying if I told you
Losing you was something I could handle

Somebody turn the lights on
Somebody tell me how long
All this darkness will surround you
'Cause I'm burning for you
Burning like a candle

Seven days since I've seen your face
Seven nights I have laid to waste
I'm burning out now
I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired

I know we're hanging at the end of the rope
We've flown too high
Maybe swung too low
I heard her screaming out loud (x2)

Somebody turn the lights on
Somebody tell me what's wrong
I'd be lying if I told you
Losing you was something I could handle

Somebody turn the lights on
Somebody tell me how long
All this darkness will surround
'Cause I'm burning for you
Burning like a candle

Think of all the things you say
What are the things that you mean
What are the things that you say say say to me
'Cause

You're a tragedy
A queen for his majesty
All this blasphemy
Your kingdom is crumbling (x2)

Somebody turn the lights on
Somebody tell what's wrong
I'd be lying if I told you
Losing you was something I could handle

Somebody turn the lights on
Somebody tell me how long
All this darness will surround you
'Cause I'm burning for you
Burning like a candle

    I was actually thinking it was about a couple where the girl decided to commit suicide. She left a note - she was flying off the edge of the road - he heard her screaming out loud - he's dealing with the mourning - he can't handle losing her.
    However these lyrics: "I know we're hanging at the end of the rope / We've flown too high / Maybe swung too low" make me think that perhaps it is just a breakup.

    Yes! I am the first one to post A comment on this amazing song! I think this song is so cool. This band reminds me of fall out boy A lot B cuz they sound A lot A like. But I think this song is telling about this messed up gurl this dude was in love with and then she left him A dumb a* note saying I don't wanna be with you and he can't handle it and he is not afraid to show it. When the song says 'your A tradgedy, A queen for his majesty, all this blastphemy, your kingdom is crumbling'. Ok this is so confusing because it just pops in the song out of nowhere and it has something to do with the bible(Blasphamy. Kingdom. Majesty)Duh. Bible words. I'm typing so much because I have nothing else better to do so I am gonna tell you about my thanksgiving if anyone cares(You probably don't but too bad) my family all came to my house and I was so glad that I finally got to see my cousin demi lovato(If you know who she is)For the first time in six months! I cried and I missed her so much. So anyway I really am bored but I think I am going to stop now. Maybe idk. No ill keep tlking until I run out of things too say I guess. I have A dog. She is A pomeranian named trixie. I have A cat named jet and I am 18 years old. I live in the us. Not tellin where. I'm done now. Have A nice day!
