Candles

Album: Out Of The Game (2012)
  • I tried to do all that I can
    But the churches have run out of candles
    I tried to give you all I own
    But the bankers have run out of loaners

    It’s always just that little bit more
    That doesn’t get you what you’re looking for

    I tried to block the cabin door
    But the churches have run out of candles
    I tried to lend a helping hand
    But the rooms have all run out of pamphlets
    I tried to cook it up and turn
    The kitchen has run out of canned goods

    It’s always just that little bit more
    That doesn’t get you what you’re looking for

    I tried a beggin' on the cabin floor
    But the churches have run out of candles

    Turn one day in the cathedral
    I finally lit you a candle
    And all along the vaulted halls
    The virgins did smile from their mantles

    It’s always just that little bit more
    That doesn’t get you what you’re looking for
    But gets you where you need to go
    But the churches have run out of candles

    It’s always just that little bit more
    That doesn’t get you what you’re looking for
    But gets you where you need to go
    But the churches have run out of candles

    It’s always just that little bit more
    That doesn’t get you what you’re looking for
    But gets you where you need to go
    But the churches have run out of candles Writer/s: RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
