Candle Lawns Lyrics

9. Candle Lawns (4:32)
We were like brothers,
lives entwined.
Kids who grew up together.
Dreaming of the world,
we’d get to see one time.

I found a girl,
and you bought a car.
Seemed like that summer,
was over in a minute.
Now it’s a fading wedding card.

And so life goes on,
when childhood’s gone.
The times we’ve had,
no words can say.

And all the things we do,
won’t fade away.
A real friend’s,
like a shelter on a rainy day.

Tear of a widow, a hermit’s plea.
Swords of an Angel King.
We got to see the world in flames,
before the calm.

Fought like an eagle,
waited for the dove.
We were the best,
never knew there was a limit.
But now all hell has broken loose...

Need you to give my son,
my purple heart.
Brother, leave me, run,
don’t close my eyes.

My last save point,
is getting out of reach.
My game is over,
let me fade away.

And will you tell my son,
about the purple heart?
And what it means,
to have him keep it today.

And that he knows,
I smile in the clouds above.
Come and see me,
at what he calls Candle Lawns.
