Trying not to hope too hard
For what I want
Trying not to go too far
With all the dreaming

All the disappointment
So hard to handle
I am still in the dark
Lighting candles

Late at night I lie awake
Think I should go
Catch a train to stranger towns
Where no one knows me

All the disappointment
So hard to handle
I am still in the dark
Lighting candles

All the company you keep
The things you do
Something in my heart
Will not give all you

Now that I have got somewhere
Where will I go
Love’s a train to city lights
Where someone knows you

All the disappointment
So hard to handle
I am still in the dark
Lighting candles
I am still in the dark
Lighting candles

    General CommentMaybe, and i could be wrong, this song is about how he's had a lot of relationships gone wrong but he still has hope (the candle in the dark) he'll find 'the one'.

    General Commentthe song is about loneliness. After several relationships where none of them worked out well. That frustrates the person and hopelessness follows and he is just in the dark lighting candles.
