Future Islands – Candles (The Far Field Album)

Future Islands – Candles (The Far Field Album)

Soften your penitence
It’s not your fate
Release the weight
Of shouldering after-thoughts
Of watching them fade
Oh I can relate
But deciding your innocence
It’s not mine to make
You’re not mine to save

You’re not mine…

Where does it go?
Where does it go?
This one, for the last time
Baby, I know
A little candle like you
Don’t deserve the hurt you’re going through

Let me take it from you

Where does it go?
Where does it go?
This time, for the last time
Baby, I know
A little candle like you
Don’t deserve the pain you’re going through

Let me take it away

You flicker so gently
Yet light up the hall
We dance on the walls

As shadows flee after you
The great and the small
You better us all
You better us…

Where does it go?
Where does it go?
This time, for the last time
Baby, I know
A little candle like you
Don’t deserve the hurt you’re going through

Let me take it away

Where does it go?
It comes and goes
This time, for the last time
Baby, I know
A little candle like you
Don’t deserve the pain you’re going through

You shined a light for me
Reflecting light for you
I’m too far to save
So let me take your pain

Let me take it from you
Let me take it away

Where does it go?
Where does it go?
This time, for the last time
Baby, I know
A little candle like you
Gave me the strength that pulled me through

Now let me take it from you
This sadness from you
