Verse 1

Your gust of wind threatened to put me out,

I barely flickered, lost and tired.

And suddenly I'm shining bright again,

Be careful you don't catch on fire.

Chorus

I'm a candle, I've got that spark,

I'm shining alone in the dark.

The darker you make my days,

The brighter will be my rays,

Till the time you finally fade away.

Verse 2

Your burst of snow threatened to bury me,

I barely flickered, so cold inside.

And suddenly my heart is warm again.

Be careful, you have nowhere to hide.

Chorus

I'm a candle, I've got that spark,

I'm shining alone in the dark.

The darker you make my days,

The brighter will be my rays,

Till the time you finally fade away.

Bridge

I'm a candle, but I don't melt like wax.

Be careful, there's fire in your tracks.

Be careful, there's fire in your tracks.

Chorus

I'm a candle, I've got that spark,

I'm shining alone in the dark.

The darker you make my days,

The brighter will be my rays,

Till the time you finally fade away,

Fade away.
