Future Islands – Candles lyrics

Soften your penitence
It’s not your fate
Release the weight
Of shouldering afterthoughts
Of watching them fade
Oh I can relate
But deciding your innocence
It’s not mine to make
You’re not mine to save

You’re not mine

Where does it go, where does it go?
This one, for the last time, baby, I know
A little candle like you don’t deserve the hurt you’re going through
Let me take it from you

Where does it go, where does it go?
This time, for the last time, baby, I know
A little candle like you, don’t deserve the pain you’re going through
Let me take it away

You flicker so gently
Yet light up the hall
We dance on the walls

As shadows flee after you
The great and the small
You better us all
You better us

Where does it go, where does it go?
This time, for the last time, baby, I know
A little candle like you don’t deserve the hurt you’re going through
Let me take it away

Where does it go? it comes and goes
This time, for the last time, baby, I know
A little candle like you don’t deserve the pain you’re going through

You shined a light for me, reflecting light for you
Well, I’m too far to save so let me take your pain
Let me take it from you
Let me take it away, away, away

Where does it go, where does it go?
This time, for the last time, baby, I know
A little candle like you gave me the strength that pulled me through
Now let me take it from you (this sadness from you)
