Light Me A Candle
I am broken, I have always been broken.
I look for the good side, the gate so pure and golden.
And even when I cry, I brush away my tears.
And light again a candle, to rid me of my fears.
I'm broken on the inside, I'm broken in my soul.
Will you ever notice, will you ever know?
I've been in so much pain, but you never see.
The pain-filled, tear-stained, imperfect side of me.
Won't you ever look through, this disguise that I have made
And see to the inside, through a dirty glass pain.
I am NOT perfect, I am NOT strong
But just stand by me, and I'll continue on
As I have always done, on these sad and crying days
Filled with all my suffering, filled with all my pain.
Save me now, from my own sin
Keep me strong, DON'T LET THEM WIN
