Candle shy
Candle weep
Fly hot candle leap
Candle roll
Unfold and ball
Candle large
Candle small
Your threads of fire are burning up
Your feathers of fire are winning night
And turning light
And turning light
Light deepest night for me
And steer for me
Spin and spin then and then
When I'm dancing with my love
The shadows flicker up above
Up above the shadows do the candle mambo
Candle roll
Unfold and ball
Candle blur
Candle whir
Candle her
Candle her
While your lights are spinning around
Your feathers of fire are winning night
And turning light
And turning light
Candle crack
Candle break
Correct the night's mistake
(repeating of parts)
