Love is like a candle


Love is like a candle

Burning high and burning bright

Until there comes a sudden draught

To jeopardise the light


Incandescent indecision

Tears of wax run down the sides

A flame that flickers wildly

Could go out at any time


Love is like a candle

Precious light, oh precious flame

Be mindful of its tender glow

Second lighting's not the same
