​Candlelight

This song is by Janis Ian and appears on the album Miracle Row (1977).

Don't let the sun go down on me
I do not want to be alone tonight
We'll be right, you'll see
Night is a shadow on the soul
And if you want to set me wholly free
Stay by me tonight

I've been afraid of love
Knowing I need you to stay
I've been ashamed to love
Knowing you're leaving me
Day after day
I'm begging you, pleading
I like you best
When night runs a shadow on the soul
No more empty hands to hold

Don't let the evening sun go down
I haven't found a way
To trade the night
Sheer delight
Burning bright
Candlelight
Lay me down - astound me
Not a sound- surround me
Skies unbound, I'm unwound Lay me down

I've been afraid to love
This is no time to hesitate
I've been ashamed to love
But lay me down, I just can't wait
I like you best
When night is a pleasure you can give
Lay me down - now I know how to
Lay me down - now I know how to
Lay me down
Now I know how to live
