Burning the Candle
Song (1987), from The Promise
Buy the MP3 ($0.99) 

I spent my whole life waiting

And I can't remember how long

I've been burning the candle over you

 

I take my time anticipating

But the time is running away

I was burning the candle over you

 

I lie awake, head on my pillow

Thoughts in my head fanning the fire

'Cause you made the world

A little easier for me

 

I built a world, traveled the rivers

Down to the edge of the sea

I was burning the candle over you
