"Candle In Your Window" as written by and Joshua Jon Pyke....
My body bends, your body bows
We double then unfurl
Oh we unfold

Then I collapse into your bones
Though when courage leaves me
I still collapse alone

So light a candle in your window
I’ll be hiding till the sun goes down
And if that candle still lights up your window
I’ll climb on up to you

To our own accidents we’re prone
So I will let me fate remain unknown

And out on this battlefield I know
I’m all arms and elbows
Still fighting back the beaks of crows

But one day I might not exist I know
But the candle in your window
Still finds the light in every night
And I’ll be searching for your glow after I go

    General CommentI think this song a guy who is fighting in the war or some sort of high risk occupation, where he has to go away and fight under dangerous circumstances. Every time he finds his way back to his loved one - her light guides him back every time. I think the candle in the window is a metaphor, for her internal strength and goodness, which keeps him alive and coming back to her. He knows realistically there's a chance that he might be killed, but he's also telling her that even if this does happen, he knows that she'll still have the same strength and he'll still always be there for her, watching over her.
