I gotta light a candle for you
So you can see yourself in the dark
I gotta get a handle on you (so you can see yourself)
And the hand will leave a mark

I gotta get directions off you (can you see yourself)
The mirror flare could be anywhere

The night is a liar
Overthrow the tyrant
Overthrow the tyrant

And in the fading light I saw
When you asked yourself
Why has this happened to me
Once or twice (once or twice)

Something nice might have come of it

I gotta fight a battle for you
Dial it back another century
Another night I'd settle for you (you can see yourself)
Every morning and everywhere

Today is a liar
Undergo the silence
Undergo the silence

And in the fading light I saw
When you asked yourself
Why has this happened to me
Once or twice

In the fading night I heard
When they shoot themselves
How did this happen to me
Once or twice (once or twice)

Something nice might have come of it
Something nice might have come of it

I gotta light a candle for you
So you can see yourself...
