After The Tragedy – The Merchant And The Blue Candle lyrics

The ocean breathes its rhythm delivering my senses, reality is welcoming
Remind me what I'm doing; is this where I've been living?
This cave attempts to swallow light
Will it swallow me instead?

Is this what I hoped for?
A light in the darkness intoxicates,
Drawing me closer with no escape to my fate

You are my only light, I found you now youre mine, carry me through the night
You are my only light, I wont leave you behind, Ill guard you with my life

He told me of your glory, about your unheard story,
How could I be the first to hear?
Your light could keep me living, your warmth returns my feeling
But if I shared you, would you leave?
Would your light abandon me?

Is this what I hoped for?
Your love told me nothing would be the same
This has no ending if Ill just stay
Where I'm safe

Will you burn out when I'm gone?
Will you burn out when I'm gone?
