Candles burning in the night
Just like a child's life
We've got to save them
Candles burning in the night
Just like a child's life
We've got to save them

Jah, in all my days
I'm so ashamed
To see what's really happening
They're running all about
They're so out of order
And have no behavior

Candles burning in the night
Just like a child's life
We've got to save them
Candles burning at both ends
How can they last the night

Jah, give I the knowledge now
To except that which I cannot change
Give I the wisdom to know the difference
And give I the courage to change what I can

Candles burning in the night
Just like a child's life
We've got to save them
Candles burning at both ends

How can they ever expect to learn
If they don't listen?
How can they ever expect to learn
If they don't look and see?

Experiences of life
Have taught them nothing
Know not that it is they
And them alone can set us free

Candles burning in the night
Just like a child's life
We've got to save them
Candles burning at both ends
How can they last the night

[Incomprehensible]
