A Candle For The Flame

Janis Ian

When I look back on the friends I've made
and think how few of them remain
I would not be ashamed to say
I'm lucky I became
a candle for the flame

Looking back at the money I made
There are those who say I threw it all away
Gone to family and friends
but I would do it again
‘cause it helped me to remain
a candle for the flame

It shone so bright
on my darkest night
I never felt myself alone
and I always believed
that it shined just for me
A light I'd always known
would guide my way back home

I have tasted the wine of regret
I have wasted the secrets I kept
but I would not be afraid to say
I'm lucky I remained
a candle to the flame
No, I would not be ashamed to say
I'm lucky I became
a candle for the flame
