I left a light in the window

But you never came home

I waited in shadows

But I waited alone

I lit the candle you asked for

But it burnt through the night

And it only flickered out

In the early dawn’s light

I waited in silence

For you to come back

But I waited in vain

As my hopes faded to black

Perhaps I’m just a fool

To have dreamt that you’d care

I guess Heaven’s too far

My words can’t reach you there
