Lyrics

Candle on the Moon (M. Russell)

Riding on these rusty rails
My ghost train lumbers slow
Destination the firebox sunrise
Where a phantom rooster crows

I wonder where I am tonight
Though reflective, I can’t be seen
So tiny and far, like a candle on the moon
Like a soul that’s never been

Unwrought words on tip of tongue
Deeper thoughts left unsaid
Swallowed up in obscurity
Aborted and left for dead

I wonder where I am tonight
Though reflective, I can’t be seen
So tiny and far, like a candle on the moon
Like a soul that’s never been

Seize again a childhood dream
Perchance if I could dare
Testify to the court of hope
And ignite the morning air

I wonder where I am tonight
Though reflective, I can’t be seen
So tiny and far, like a candle on the moon
Like a soul that’s never been

So tiny and far, like a candle on the moon
Like a soul that’s never been
