C Bm But buy another candle son, it's not too much to pay." C G C G C For one more try, and I had to smile before I walked away CHORUS 1 Em Bm Tonight in a room full of candles C G Another cup of ashes drains away Em D And at times it gets so hard to handle C Bm Knowing one more simple song has swiftly taken wing C G C G C And I'm left alone to hear the song a lonely candle sings Coffee houses bother me, I cannot tell you why But it never seems hello sounds as sweet as goodbye And the waitresses in passing, remeber all your names... They say "Look around and try to meet a single eye." And "Empty cups will mock me if I stay, but buy another coffee Stan, it's not too much to pay and we will try to raise your smile before you walk away." TO CHORUS 1 The priest I found was nervous. He cleared his throat a lot But framed in staned glass windows, his eyes were lost in thought And I said "Father can you tell me, is some happiness my right?" He said "Rather seek you joy, in the blessing of your God and happiness from worship in His sight." And "Buy another candle son, before you start to pray, and don't forget to cross your breast before you walk away." TO CHORUS 1 One too many cigarettes, slowly burning down And the final cup of coffee was cold and full of grounds And maybe one last pipeful might send the words around Still underneath my hand, this night has slipped away And leaves me as empty as this page One more candle flickers out, the night is turning grey And I just can't watch the dying flame I have to walk away CHORUS 2 Tonight I have burned all my candles Leaving only ashes in their wake... And at times I get so hard to handle 'Cause simple songs leave me behind, they all have taken wing And I'm left alone to hear the song a lonely candle sings... Enjoy!! Stan wrote some beauts - this is not the least of them. It sounds great fingerpicking. John van Gurp Halifax, Nova Scotia firstname.lastname@example.org
