Leave the candle burning bright
To keep at bay the stormy night
It's flickering, the shadows dance
Into the flame my gaze entranced
To see what lies on next year's road
Who will bear or share my load?
The candle knows.
If wax be dreams then candle burn down slow
Leave the candle, let it shine
Into some other eyes but mine
And light a hearth of angels' gold
Someone who loves but does not hold
Oh leave the candle, let it burn
It helps the wheels of memory turn
And something's learned
If you'd be true to love and fair to friends
Leave the candle ... Leave the candle ...
Let the candle burn at just one end
