Candledancing

(Words and music by and © Talis Kimberley, 1990)

Look for me where falls the shadow,
Find me in the kindled flame
Life is brief but I’ll die dancing,
Losing the final game
Losing the final game:

This is reason, this is glory,
Candledancing, playing with fire
All I am to ashes burning,
What more should I desire?
What more should I desire?

Draw the fire around you now,
Let the heat consume you for
Moths were ever drawn to the flame –
And this sweet burning candledancing game

Soon too soon my light is fading
And my dance is at an end
Will you follow me, candledancing,
Have you a life to spend
Have you a life to spend?

Draw the fire around you now
Let the heat consume you in
Incandescent visions of light
On this sweet burning candledancing night

Look for me where falls the shadow,
Find me in the kindled flame
Life is brief but I’ll die dancing
Losing the final game
This is reason, this is glory,
Candledancing, playing with fire
All I am to ashes burning
What more should I desire?
What more should I desire?

Draw the fire around you now
Let the heat consume you in
Incandescant visions of light
On this sweet burning candledancing night…
