Candles

Candles

 

You used to brighten this room with your laughter 

Now you burn alone, silently in the corner 

Did your bliss disappear when you got too close

Or it never really existed, I wonder?

 

I'll never compensate for what I've put you through

I can't even begin to, in my current state

I wish one day you could simply forgive me

But I'll for sure die before comes this day

 

Chorus

How did we manage to stay for so long so happy?

Could it be our love managed to drown all this pain?

We kept on hurting each other until it was gone

One day you said you've had enough and left in the rain

 

I've travelled the world in search of knowledge

Now I lie paralysed in bed, still knowing nothing

I set myself on fire, to give you light and warmth

Became numb to not feel this suffering

 

Why didn't you stop me? Did you like my sacrifice?

Sometimes I wonder whether you really cared

I don't blame you, I'm good for nothing anyway

What did you see in me? I couldn't ask, I was too scared

 

Chorus

How did we manage to stay for so long so happy?

Could it be our love managed to drown all this pain?

We kept on hurting each other until it was gone

One day you said you've had enough and left in the rain

 

Bridge

I ran after you, I screamed as laud as I could

Crying, all I could see were two lights in the black

The car that hit me damaged my spinal chord

I can't move, I can only blink those tears back

 

Chorus

How did we manage to stay for so long so happy?

Could it be our love managed to drown all this pain?

Who knows what would be if you just decided to stay

Crying wax like candles we slowly melt away

Damn Sk8er, that was...wow.  Pretty depressing buddy.  I almost felt the knife slice that wick, severing a flame that will never light again.  You'll find love again my friend, it will happen.  You'll meet some fantastic girl, have a candle to burn once again.  This time with whale fat, so it lasts!

I've felt really down, but pouring it into words made me feel better.
