I met a girl named Cheyanne
She was 8 years old
She told she was married
Deep down I thought that was wrong

She told me that her husband
was 8 years old as well
I just smiled and I nodded
But deep down I still thinks that's weird

Her momma told me it was destiny
she couldn't stand in the way
They acted like old lovers
From the very first day

"Love comes when it comes," she said
"Oh you just never know
It could be when you're a big kid
It could be when you're 8 years old"

She said "Light your candle in the dark
Cause this world is cold, even when it's hot
And you're a borrowed soul
Momma used to tell me that
She'd say keep it warm, keep it warm.
Someday, you gotta give it back."

I met a woman named Gladys
She was a hundred and eight
she said "John, will you promise
to write a song that says it's never too late.

"Oh I don't want to leave here," she said
"but I suppose that I will.
I just hope they give me free will
up there like they gave it to me down here"

She said "Light your candle in the dark
Cause this world is cold, even when it's hot
And you're a borrowed soul
Momma used to tell me that
She'd say keep it warm, keep it warm.
Someday, you gotta give it back."

I met a boy named Dakota
He was three years old
I asked him if he believed in Jesus
He said I just believe in the collective soul

Oh John when you think about it
It just makes the most sense
And if you ever doubt it
Just put your hand into someone else's hand

He said "Light your candle in the dark
Cause this world is cold, even when it's hot
and you're a borrowed soul
Momma used to tell me that
She'd say keep it warm, keep it warm.
She'd say Keep it warm, keep it warm
She'd say Keep it warm, keep it warm
Someday you gotta give it back
