L Y R I C S

Life, like a candle in the rain
Life, a bright momentary flame
When we master the tune, it’s over too soon
He’s gone, and nothing’s the same

There we were, happy in our wonderland
All the world was in our hands — like a county fair, didn’t have a care

Had it made, (so) sure of what the future held
Till one day the heavens fell — heard the music fade,
but no one heard the words I prayed

I light every candle, afraid of the dark
It’s too much to handle, this pain in my heart

Life, like a candle in the rain
Life, a bright momentary flame
When you’re young, you don’t see, how short life can be
Regrets are all that remain

In my dreams, everything is like before
But I wake up wanting more — it’s a trick of night, I can’t make it right

Looking back, wish I had a time machine
I’d repair so many things — but we can’t do that,
we’re not allowed to change the past

Now that I feel (so) all alone
Where is a place I can call my home?
Home, where I was a wife, where I had a life
He’s gone and nothing’s the same
Life, like a candle in the rain
