"Candlelight" as written by and Imogen Heap....
I am alone, surrounded by
The color blue
Inside a poem, the only
Words I ever knew
Washing my hands, of the
Many years untold
For now I am banned,
My future is to unfold

[Chorus]
Would you take my
Candlelight
Would you take my
Candlelight, and oh
Would you take
My candlelight
Away from me

I am blind
My eyes
Covered
From
The
Outside

For I have lied,
Now all there is left
For me to do is hide
Take in a deep breath,
And I lift my head
For I am a new man
And I arise from my bed

[Chorus: x2]

This is all there is,
I can see that now
But I have to be careful with it,
Now it's been found
So fragile, but powerful,
Yeah this is the light
Light of my destiny stay with me,
Through every night

[Chorus]

Would you take my
Candlelight
Would you take my
Candlelight
Would you take
My candlelight
Away, away from me.

    General Commentalthough I find this song very elegant and I do like it... I found it a bit too repetitive which makes it sort of boring. Hmm not boring...just not as good as so many other songs by her. This song is so haunting i loooove it

    General CommentShe said at a recent concert that this song is about her worrying about her record label taking away her creativity when she first signed. She worried that her songwriting wouldn't just come naturally anymore, wouldn't be fun anymore. And that in fact, it wasn't fun for a little while, but then it got fun again :)
