Today I stand lighting a candle
For the girl who became too much to handle
Too difficult to love, to trust, to understand
For the girl who let it get, so out of hand
I light a candle for her gracious soul,
Nowadays as black as coal.
For this sick and twisted humanity,
Slowly drove her to insanity.
I light a candle for the one I can never set free
This candle, I light, for the girl I used to be.
