I see a place where candles burn and lovers rest tonight
The hollow sound inside me now keeps telling me to write
But songs of love will never leave love's feelings undefined
The tide has turned, the waves roll in, the waters fill my eyes

The price of lust has risen till the ceiling will not stand
The tears I shed were not in shame, the world was in my hands
If trust was just a simple thing, then trusting I would be
But deep within my soul I know it's better to be free

The days fly by, the waves roll in but freedom has not come
I fear my faith will soon give out, my senses come undone
My role is played, the demon dogs come stealin' over land
And foolish I would climb once more a tree too weak to stand

I see a place where candles burn and lovers rest tonight
The hollow sound inside me now keeps telling me to write
But songs of love should not be sung where staying is not planned
And foolish I would climb once more a tree too weak to stand
And foolish I would climb once more a tree too weak to stand

LIGHTFOOT, GORDON
