Lyrics
Light A Candle

©Schantell Wharton/Hans Albrecht

V1

Opened my eyes and felt pain inside my head

Threw off the covers and told myself

I will be starting this day with peace and

Gratitude I woke up and have another day

I chose to make this day amazing

So I light it bright to show me the way

Ch

Light a candle for you

I woke to the news that

More people died senselessly

One on the ground eight seconds down

Another shoot in the back seven times

I won’t live with hate I choose to forgive

Kneel down on my knee

And I light a candle for my brothers and me

V2

Tears rolled down my check

I’m looking at your picture in the kitchen

With that silly grin on your face

Missing you with every fiber on my being

So many thing remind me of you

Praying I’ll see you in Paradise- another time another life

Pre

Watching the smoke from the candle disappear

It remind me of you

So I will light a candle in remembrance of you

Ch

Light a candle for you

I woke to the news that

More people of color died senselessly

One on the ground eight seconds down

Another shoot in the back seven times

I won’t live with hate I choose to forgive

Kneel down on one knee

And I light a candle for my brothers and me

Outro:

For all the mothers who worry if their child will come home safe

For all the fathers who now doubt their holy faith

For all the people living in deep fear

For the politicians who listen but don’t ever hear

For all those who choose between a gun and a knife

For the children not knowing there’s a better life

For all the voices that yell but are never heard

For the last in line who never get the last word

For all the justice that felt like a slap in the face

For all the people dream of an entirely new place

For all the scars that apologies just can’t erase

For all the hope that fades like smoke above

For all the lovers who gave up on love

We hold a candle for you

We hold a candle for you

We hold a candle for you (softer, and fade)
