Candles Burning
Today, another burning candle's gone 
And in my eyes, tears, wet and bitter 
Burn my cheeks and drown all my cries 

Day after day, my feelings, sparkles once been bright 
Leave me in silence, one by one, and I 
Cover my face in shame as my heart you pass by 

Tomorrow gone, they are still here today 
Poor fellows, few as they are left to share 
Yet true! How true: too many to be kept.
