Her little man is 4 years old
Looks like his father so he's been told
But he wouldn't know it, he ain't never seen him around
Life has been cold, it treats her unkind
But she'll keep on searching until she can find
Something she can cling to when the rain comes down

A candle just won't light in the pouring rain
The pressures of this life are driving her insane yeah
Now given the chance she knows she can shine
But she's so tied down that she ain't got the time
A candle just won't light in the pouring rain

She was so young, had to quit school
Grew up too fast now she's nobody's fool
No time for dreamin' life just kinda leads her around
9 to 5 world leaves nowhere to grow
She'd spread her wings but there's nowhere to go
Her tiny flame is no match for the rain coming down

A candle just won't light in the pouring rain
The pressures of this life are driving her insane (yeah)
Now given the chance she knows she can shine
But she's so tied down that she ain't got the time
A candle just won't light in the pouring rain
