Candle In The Wind

It seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind without a fight,
For God's sake hold up your head, You are not dead,

Hold your words, and let Love in,
Never knowing who to cling to When the rain set in,
Your mind is like the candle in the wind,

letting go of hate and sin
I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid back then,
Your candle burned out long before,

With the gray in your hair,
tells the arts man where you've been,
Like the candle in the wind,

The sun went, and now it came,
Just like the night with many dreams,
O how feeble is a man with out power to clam,

Let not the fire burnout that is in your heart
Love is a gift you never want to miss,
Love is like that candle in the wind,
It will burnout if the fire don't stay lite.
