CANDLES

I’ve heard the people talking in the fields and in the stores
They say a man is claiming visions
And they don’t want him ‘round here no more
With questions in my heart I walked home last night
And in front of his old farmhouse something caught my eye

Chorus
I saw a candle burning brightly
Up in his window late last night
And in my heart it gripped me tightly
And something said, Son what he’s doing’s right
I saw a candle burning bright

A vigil got together and they kicked in his front door
As they drug him on to the back porch
I wondered what all this was for
I watched him wrench in pain as the tar burned in his flesh
While a preacher held a candle dripping wax upon his chest

Chorus
I saw a candle burning brightly
Deep in his eyes late last night
And in my heart it gripped me tightly
And something said, Son what he’s doing’s right
I saw a candle burning bright

This morning I was walking, leaves blowing down that old dirt road
Those feeling just kept stirring deep within my soul
And on my lips a silent whisper
Lord please tell me what is right
And then the Spirit danced within me like the soft candlelight

Chorus
I saw a candle burning brightly
Up in his window late last night
And in my heart it gripped me tightly
And something said, Son what he’s doing’s right
I saw a candle burning bright
I saw the light
