Brief Candles Lyrics

Brief Candles - The Zombies

Written by:R. Argent/C. White/H. Grundy/C. Blunstone

 

There she sits her hands are held

Tight around her glass

 

She only needs to be alone

She knows this mood will passto realize that she was

Strong

And he too weak to stay

 

And to realize that she is better off this way

 

Brief candles in her mind

Bright and tiny gems of memory

Brief candles burn so fine

Leaves a light inside where she can see

What makes it all worthwhile

 

Her sadness makes her smile

 

His alone girl fades away

Left out on a limb

 

Finds he needs her more because

She's no more need for him

 

He understood so very well

The things she had to say

 

Soon he'll understand that he is better off this way

 

Brief candles in his mind

Bright and tiny gems of memory

Brief candles burn so fine

Leaves a light inside where he can see

What makes it all worthwhile

His sadness makes him smile

 

In the corner see his face

The man just sips his drink

 

Not one feeling does he show

Far too numb to think

He does not say a single word

No word of love to say

 

Maybe he will soon believe he's better off this way

 

Brief candles in his mind

Bright and tiny gems of memory

Brief candles burn so fine

 

Leaves a light inside where he can see

What makes it all worthwhile

 

His sadness makes him smile
