  • Some call her strange lady from the mountains
    Well, yes, and others say she's not really real
    Like a candle burns bright
    And it wants to burn faster
    Well, maybe then, at least, she really feels
    She really feels

    Burning like a candle in the middle
    She's lonely, lost, she's disconnected.
    She finds no comfort in her surroundings.
    Beautiful, insecure, she has nothing.
    She moves from situation to situation, like a ghost.
    Then she see's him, candle burning.

    [Chorus]
    It's strange, she runs with the ones she can't keep up with
    It's so strange, slows down, so desperate to stop her
    Meet her in the middle, they both run from the one who hunts them.
    They drop to the forest floor, frozen,
    They drop to the forest floor, frozen

    He loves her, but he loves his life alone as well
    But does he know the road or the reasons why
    Well, if he leaves her
    He'd be losing the chance to stay alive
    Well, the candle burns bright
    Then the candle dies
    Burning from the middle
    Like a candle

    [Chorus]

    Strange, she's laid on the floor in silent pain
    Strange, she sat in the chair for months just staring
    Strange, she knows too much to walk away
    Strange, she couldn't do it anyway,
    Strange, she's laid on the floor in silent pain
    Strange, she sat in the chair for months just staring
    Strange, she knows too much to walk away
    Strange, she couldn't do it anyway

    He slows down, he slows down,
    He slows down,
    She couldn't do it
    She couldn't do it Writer/s: DAVE STEWART, STEVIE NICKS
