The candle's burning low now

It's time for us to go

We loved it while it lasted

But the candle's burning low.

We laughed and cried and wondered

And enjoyed the shining sun

We cowered as it thundered

But at last the rain was done.

Our hard times fell beside us

And our worries flew away

Our nightmares all receded

At the breaking of the day.

The candle's burning low now

It's time for us to go

We loved it while it lasted

But the candle's burning low.

Our time flew by in hours

In seconds and in years

We'd grown a lovely garden

All watered by our tears.

The clock hands never wavered

But we didn't seem to mind.

It was in love we labored

Seeking what we'd never find.

The candle's burning low now

It's time for us to go

We loved it while it lasted

But the candle's burning low.

It's dark inside this place now

It's hard to find out where

The lonely pathway wanders

Or if it's even there.

I cannot feel your hand now

I call but you don't hear

There's no one left to worry

And no one left to fear.

The candle's burning low now

It's time for us to go

We loved it while it lasted

But the candle's burning low.

It's lonely where I'm going

It's lonely where I've been

I'm waiting and I'm hoping

That I'll see you again.

The clock is ticking softly

Its hands are growing slow

I wonder if you loved me

But now I'll never know.

The candle's burning low now

It's time for us to go

We loved it while it lasted

But the candle's burning low.
