Paul Revere and the Raiders

"Burn Like a Candle"

As a younger girl, you didn’t have much
There  ain’t a lot to have on our side of town
The  streets are dirty, we got by
Then one day, we kinda lost touch
You packed and moved away from our side of town
You  wanted fine things many can buy

You  found the people with money
Bright lights that turn night to day
Just  like a candle light, you’re really burnin’ bright
But just how long can you stay?

Burn like a candle, it’s your turn to burn
Fire’s gettin’ higher, girl you got no shame
Burn  like a candle, you’ll run out of flame

Just the other day, I saw you on the street
You didn’t know me, you were flyin’ so high
Your face was empty, head in the sky
You looked so thin, no shoes were on your feet
Your crystal beads were brighter than your eyes
You didn’t see me walk right on by

The trip you’re takin’ is one-way
The train to nowhere goes fast
Just like a candle light, you’re really burnin’ bright
But just how long can you last?

Burn like a candle, it’s your turn to burn
Fire’s gettin’ higher, girl you got no shame
Burn like a candle, you’ll run out of flame

Burn like a candle, it’s your turn to burn
Fire’s gettin’ higher, girl you got no shame
Burn like a candle, you’ll run out of flame
