Deep Inside Me Is A Candle

Deep inside me is a candle
Burning clear as starry night
But while it stays alone inside me
It is such a little light

I wait for one to touch me
Who can light the love in here
Make it burn like supernova
Make it burn like sunlight clear

Take this little light of loving
Make it shine out of the grey
Like a million shining fireflies
At the closing of the day

Turn the glimmer in the shadows
To a starburst in the sky
With a little of your loving
As a comet flying by

As the candle deep inside me
Becomes a searing flame so bright
It is fuelled by the true love
That turned darkness into light
