Light Another Candle

© Words and music by Ray Scudero. All rights reserved.

Days and night turn into weeks and weeks turn into months,
As seasons change and growing works its magic in the sun,
You and I are different now we change like everyone,
And we light another candle when another year is done.

Yesterdays will slip away with every setting sun,
Each moment is eternal while tomorrows never come,
Seems we have a tendency to lose touch with time,
Like meaning of a song is lost in rhythm wrapped in rhyme.

(Chorus:) Light another candle for today,
Another time is ending as this moment slips away,
We can remember now the way we used to see,
And wonder in the candlelight at who we’re going to be.

Looking now into your eyes I see myself in you,
The Questions that you ask of me I ask of myself too,
Someday we'll have the answers and someday we all will know,
The reason for the seasons and the reason why we grow.

Two and fifty seasons pass, the years have taken flight,
Two and ninety candle flames have flickered in the night,
The past is ground you’ve covered and the present’s where you stand,
It seems before you realize, the boy’s become a man.

Light another candle for today,
Another time is ending as this moment slips away,
We can remember now the way we used to see,
And wonder in the candlelight at who we’re going to be.

(Reprise:) We can remember now the way we used to see,
And wonder in the candlelight at who we’re going to be.
