Lonely Tears By Candlelight await a man who forgot hoe to love.

Another dream I held too tight
Has managed to slip out of sight
And so I spend another night
With lonely tears by candlelight
Here was a kiss I’d come to know
Amid this world she came to grow
And as she did she brought a glow
To one who stared into a plight
With lonely tears by candlelight
Each step I took she danced along
With every mood a special song
Amid such right what could go wrong
Those moments made we would prolong
We never had to share delight
With lonely tears by candlelight
My shadow formed another stream
Another pool another dream
At first it earned your gracious gleam
Until I made it so supreme
And blessed it with a sacred team
As she hid somewhere out of sight
With lonely tears by candlelight
And on I ranted day by bay
A child who had to get his way
She’s now a puppet for my play
Do every little thing I say
There in the mirror my dismay
Too late for she had gone away
Another dream slipped out of sight
I should have learned to hold her right
And so I spend another night
With lonely tears by candlelight
