Verse 1

A candle always burns itself

To save the others from the dark.

In the end all that's left of it

Is molten wax that leaves a mark.

And soon that too is scrubbed away,

Forgotten with the yesterdays,

That was my fate, my price to pay.

Pre-chorus

But when his match touched my virgin skin,

It ignited a fire within,

One that burnt through agonizing nights,

Till it turned into a blinding light.

Chorus

The sky is dark, his star is gone,

But my own light makes me carry on.

My skin is burnt, my soul is dead,

But I'm alive, and I look ahead.

Verse 2

A candle always burns itself

To save the others from the dark.

But are they worth the sacrifice

If they can't even love the spark?

No, I will not be sold away,

To my devil from my dark days,

I'll burn for myself, come what may.

Pre-chorus

And when his match touched my tainted skin,

It unleashed the flame burning within,

One that could never give up the fight,

Till it turned into a blinding light.

Chorus

The sky is still dark, his star is still gone,

But my own light makes me carry on.

My skin is still burnt, my soul is still dead,

But I'm alive, and I look ahead.

Bridge

I burn, burn, burn.

The wheels of time turn,

And I burn, burn, burn.

Chorus

The sky is dark, his star is gone,

But my own light makes me carry on.

My skin is burnt, my soul is dead,

But I'm alive, and I look ahead.
