Candles (Remastered Album Version) (Remastered Album Version)

Aswad

Candles burning in the night
Just like a child's life
We've got to save them
Candles burning in the night
Just like a child's life
We've got to save them
Jah in all my days
I'm so ashamed
To see what's really happening
They're running all about
They're so out of order
And have no behaviour
Candles burning in the night
Just like a child's life
We've got to save them
Candles burning at both ends
How can they last the night
Jah give I the knowledge now
To expect that which I cannot change
Give I the wisdom
To know the difference
And give I the courage
To change what I can
Candles burning in the night
Just like a child's life
We've got to save them
Candles burning at both ends
How can they ever expect to learn
If they don't listen
How can they ever expect to learn
If they don't look and see
Experiences of life
Have taught them nothing
They know not that it is they
And them alone
Can set us free
Candles burning in the night
Just like a child's life
We've got to save them
Candles burning at both ends
How can they last the night
