Five Candles

A promise or a dare
I would jump if I knew you'd catch me
Staring over the edge
I can't tell if you'll be here for me

I close my eyes and make a wish
Turn out the lights and take a breath
Pray that when the wick is burned
You would say that it's all about love


Chorus
You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open
You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open


You were never here

I remember you said
Love was more than your good intentions


Empty boxes on the floor
Things I've never asked you for
I pray that when the wick has burned
You would say that it's all about love


[Repeat Chorus]


And I can't see the promise of
Excuses you fall upon
So I pray to God not holding on
To things you left undone


[Repeat Chorus 2x]


You were there when I
You were there when I
You were there when I needed
