Donna Boyd: My Music

Keep The Candle Burning

(Donna Boyd)

(Music & Lyrics by: Donna Boyd © 2006)

V1:
As a little girl, my Grandpa spent time with me
He'd talk to me about all kinds of things
The way to bait your line,
And to sit and bide your time
Don't give up on things because you just can't see
He understood the meaning of forever
And he'd say that love would conquer anything
That sometimes when it's dark,
All you need's a little spark
To light the way and show your heart you still believe

CH:
And it grows stronger, every year
Glowing brighter, have no fear
Love keeps a candle burning in the dark
And when I feel I've lost my way
I close my eyes and hear him say
Girl, don't you let go of that spark
You gotta keep the candle burning in your heart

V2:
This little girl has been around the world
I'm grown-up now and I've seen all kinds of things
I never thought I'd see the day
When love would walk away
I didn't count on pride colliding with my dreams
But I still believe in love and possibilities
I know that we can make it if we try
Cos sometimes when it's dark
All you need's a little spark
To light the way and show your heart you still believe
