A Candle Flame To The Sun

A song about the promise we all have but don't seem to fulfil.

I was only a bright flame flickering

In a breath of air with no direction

Too small to lift the constant darkness

Too small to even show through


Millions of sparks all disconnected

Just imagine what could happen

But I'm just a candle flame to the sun


When I'm dangerously close

And my dreams all turn to smoke

There could still be enough to illuminate

Maybe enough to last forever


So many sparks all disconnected

Can't you see just how it could be

So many candle flames could make a sun


Let it burn and it might never fade

But maybe that's too much to hope for

A million stars shine brighter than one

But I'm just a candle flame to the sun

The End
