Lyrics

First Verse

Spark a match and watch the candle burn
The wick runs out and then love takes its turn
On fallen angels and broken sounds
We will last past the final round

Chorus

C                         G*
It took a while for you to find me
Am
Because I was hiding in the lime tree
C                     G*
Above the city in the rain cloud
Am
I poked a hole and watched it drain out

Second Verse

Parallel to the city streets
Our broken crowns beneath our feet
But as we walk across the diamonds
We know that love is always shining
So save me love save me all the time
I'll wash you down with a simple sip of wine
And toast my glass to all my loved ones
To let them know that the stars well they still shine

Chorus (Play this twice)

C                         G*
It took a while for you to find me
Am
Because I was hiding in the lime tree
C                     G*
Above the city in the rain cloud
Am
I poked a hole and watched it drain out

Spark a match and watch the candle burn
The wick runs out and then love takes its turn

We will last past the final round
