Candles

This song is by Chris Rea and appears on the album Water Sign (1983) and on the compilation album New Light Through Old Windows (1988).

Faith for reasons still unknown
Like 'Bleak House fog' seems everywhere
The truth has frozen into stone
And hope lies freezing in the midnight air
Though dark our days may seem
This is a different dream
Their freedom light don't shine at all

So I will light a candle for you
Keep it burning in the night
And pray that you are all right
I will light a candle for you
Little candle burning bright

When school yard heroes disappeared
The little girl, she stands alone
Oh I believe you if you say
A prayer can help to get her home

So I will light a candle for you
Keep it burning in the night
And pray that you are all right
I will light a candle for you
Little candle burning bright
