brave combo – candles lyrics

refrain:
you, were my hope
your hope was mine
candles are low
for the last time
i don’t want to look; when i do it saddens me
it saddens me so when i recall their first light
i don’t want to turn back to then, for then i’ll see
how quickly they lengthen in line and they multiply

(refrain)

once i made a big cake for my father so long ago
for his 50th birthday one year, wouldn’t you know
like c*ssandra, i read him a chilling prophecy
i read him a poem, it was ‘candles’ and now i grieve

spoken:
[days of our future stand before us
like a row of little lighted candles
golden, warm and lively little candles
the days gone by remain behind us
a mournful line of burnt-out candles
the nearest ones are still smoking
cold candles, melted, and bent]
(from “candles” by cavafy)

i don’t want to look when i do it saddens me
it saddens me so when i recall their first light
i don’t want to turn back to then, for then i’ll see
how quickly they lengthen in line, and they multiply.

(refrain)
