A Candle In The Window

Original and similar lyrics
There's a road that I remember leading to a special place Where the door was always open to a smiling face There's a picture on the mantle of a boy that looks like me It's always the same, there's a stocking with my name And a candle in the window, a flame against the night There's a candle in the window, it's like God's perfect light It don't take a lot of money to know what riches are Just a candle in the window Maybe it's just wishful thiking I can hear the sleigh bells ring Almost taste teh pie she's baking, it's Christmas Eve And there's a candle in the window, a flame against the night The candle in the window, it's like God's perfect light It don't take a lot of money to know what riches are Just a candle in the window and Christmas in your heart Wherever the years may take me no matter how far I go There's going to be a candle burning, it's always nice to know It don't take a lot of money to know what riches are Just a candle in the window and Christmas in your heart

Candle In The Window

Linda Eder "It's Time"
Hurry through the night Past the shuttered houses Towards a solitary light Burning in a window near a figure in a chair Always sitting there Quiet as a prayer Does he close his eyes? Weary with the weight of being suddenly so wise. Tired of the demons he must sit up there and fight Deep into the night Praying that he's right Every evening I can see a shadow on the shade And I don't feel so alone or so afraid There's a candle in the window every night Reflecting all our hopes and dreams Or so it seems to me as I look up to see That candle in the window every night Burning like the yearning to be free Far away and dim Kept alive by him Seven blocks away Before I go to bed I fall down on my knees and pray That he will keep his candle burning just a moment more Till he finds a way This is what I pray And I wonder does he see me passing by each night As I look up to find his patch of light There's a candle in the window every night Reflecting all our hopes and dreams Or so it seems to me as I look up to see that Candle in the window shining bright Burning like the yearning to be free Far away and dim Kept alive by him Hurry through the night Towards a solitary light

Moths

JETHRO TULL "Heavy Horses"
The leaded window opened to move the dancing candle flame And the first Moths of summer suicidal came. And a new breeze chattered in its May-bud tenderness --- Sending water-lillies sailing as she turned to get undressed. And the long night awakened and we soared on powdered wings --- Circling our tomorrows in the wary month of Spring. Chasing shadows slipping in a magic lantern slide --- Creatures of the candle on a night-light-ride. Dipping and weaving --- flutter through the golden needle's eye in our haystack madness. Butterfly-stroking on a Spring-tide high. Life's too long (as the Lemming said) as the candle burned and the Moths were wed. And we'll all burn together as the wick grows higher --- before the candle's dead. The leaded window opened to move the dancing candle flame. And the first moths of summer suicidal came to join in the worship of the light that never dies in a moment's reflection of two moths spinning in her eyes.

Coming Home For Christmas

JIM BRICKMAN "Homecoming"
When I think of snow, I think of Christmas. When I think of you, I think of home. I know all these miles that come between us for a while will melt away. If I could make this plane go any faster, I’d be standing right outside your door. I can close my eyes and see that sweet look of surprise there on your face. It’s worth the wait Hang the mistletoe by the fire’s glow, put the angel on the tree. Light a candle in the window, just for me. I’ll bring you all my heart and soul, my love, my hugs and kisses. I’m coming home, I’m coming home for Christmas. Everywhere I go, it makes me miss you, cause everywhere I look, it’s red and green. Everybody celebrating only makes the waiting slow down the day. I’m on my way. Hang the mistletoe by the fire’s glow, put the angel on the tree. Light a candle in the window, just for me. I’ll bring you all my heart and soul, my love, my hugs and kisses. I’m coming home, I’m coming home for Christmas. Wanna hear all about all the things you’re doing and make up for lost time. Tell you what I’ve been through, laugh like we always do. God, I’ve been missing you. Hang the mistletoe by the fire’s glow, put the angel on the tree. Light a candle in the window, just for me. I’ll bring you all my heart and soul, my love, my hugs and kisses. I’m coming home. You won’t be alone. I’m coming home for Christmas.

Let Joy And Innocence Prevail

GRACE JONES
I tell you of a girl, her husband was a soldier Gone to war in some strange country far away No word had come to her but the rumors of great battles fought And dying in their thousands and the world full of fear As the day would turn to evening she would light a pure white candle And place it in a window bright from where it could be seen As she placed it in the window softly without thinking She said let this burning candle be a beacon Let joy and innocence prevail Let joy and innocence prevail Believe that luck will never fail Let joy and innocence prevail And one night, asleep She dreamed she saw her husband fall In a great white cavalry charge And waking in tears She saw the candle burning in the window She still had hope And through the window A man in the distance But as he came closer She saw he was a stranger The stranger said, "I bring a message from a General A captain has been wounded, his life hangs by a thread He calls out your name and he wishes you to come to him But the journey is a hard road and you may be afraid" And she laughed and said, "No road could be too hard for I am fearless A captain and a husband, I have gained this bright new day" And she said with all her heart, she would fly to be beside him And her love would heal his wounds, restore him to her Let joy and innocence prevail Let joy and innocence prevail Believe that luck will never fail Let joy and innocence prevail Let joy and innocence prevail Let joy and innocence prevail Believe that luck will never fail Let joy and innocence prevail Let joy and innocence prevail
