Exploring the Possibilities

Lighting Candles in the Dark… September 6, 2009

The Weepies have a song named ‘Lighting Candles’ which hit me in a new way this very weekend.

I’ve spent years and continue to find myself lighting candles in the dark.

I couldn’t find their song on YouTube to share, but have written out the words below. I relate.

For me it is possibly the hunger, the not being satisfied that buoys me forward. Some days I need a strong wind to help me along.

Maybe a train to city lights. It gets dark in the country.
Candles in the dark

LIGHTING CANDLES

Trying not to hope too hard
For what I want
Trying not to go too far
With all the dreaming

All the disappointment
So hard to handle
I am still in the dark
Lighting candles

Late at night I Lie awake
Think I should go
Catch a train to stranger towns
Where no one knows me

All the disappointment
So hard to handle
I am still in the dark
Lighting candles

All the company you keep
The things you do
Something in my heart
Will not give up on you

Now that I have got somewhere
Where will I go
Love’s a train to city lights
Where someone knows you

All the disappointment
So hard to handle
I am still in the dark
Lighting candles
I am still in the dark
Lighting candles

    Do you remember when we used candles for light in our Putney mansion so we could save electricity? Those were the days!

      Hi Joey Shine….indeed I do….that was my first bungalow away from home, on River Rd. by the farm. Poor as a church mouse, happy as can be with that lovely train running by regularly. Interesting college days indeed! With Katie my Weimaraner by my side.

  2. I love your blog. Keep up the good work!
