Candles Are Burning

This song is by Illusion and appears on the album Out of the Mist (1977).

It seems so strange that we should part
It takes no need or have no heart
I come away but where are you?
There's only words to hang on to
Still candles are burning
Still candles are burning

I've known you for a thousand years
I've cried you through a thousand tears
This time you've shown your face too late
And for the first we had to wait
Still candles are burning
Still candles are burning

How can I run from what is true?
A world's begun since there was you
It's hard to lose what might have been
But what is real and what's a dream?
Still candles are burning
Still candles are burning

Still candles are burning
Still candles are burning

Candles are burning
My hands are being charred
We'll make the best of it
And finally fit where we belong
I can't be certain
That I'll see you again
But there will always be
A flame with me that never ends
