    A flickering flame in the darkness
    The candle light dances
    Changing the atmosphere
    Giving it movement
    Freestyle
    The blackened wick holds the fire
    It burns
    And burns
    And burns
    But with each drop of melted wax
    The energy weakens
    Time ever the candle's enemy
    For the candle burns at each end
    The flames will not last long
