The Candle

- On'ono Laivindur

You said keep a candle burning
I took you for your word
You said you would hurry home
Straight away just like a bird

The candle at my window
Burns and melts away
The candle at my window
Burns and melts away

I keep a drawing of you
Standing near the bed
I listen for your footsteps
Your words echo in my head

The candle at my window
Burns and melts away
The candle at my window
Burns and melts away

I lose hope of your homecoming
My heart is filled with dread
You pierced with many arrows
Fallen in the forest, left for dead

The candle at my window
Has burnt and gone away
All my love, my brother
To send you on your way
