Five Candles (You Were There)

A promise or a dare
I would jump if I knew you’d catch me
Staring over the edge
I can’t tell if you’ll be here for me

I close my eyes and make a wish
Turn out the lights and take a breath
Pray that when the wick is burned
You would say that it’s all about love

[Chorus:]

You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open
You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open

You were never here

I remember you said
Love was more than your good intentions
Empty boxes on the floor
Things I never asked you for
I pray that when the wick is burned
You would say that it’s all about love

[Chorus]

I can’t see the promise of
Excuses you fall upon
I pray to God not holding on
To things you’ve left undone

[Chorus x 2]

You were there when I
You were there when I
You were there when I needed you
