Lyrics:

Light a Candle Angelina

There's dirty dishes in the kitchen there's laundry to be done
But you don't think about this much now this new thing has begun
They say it runs all through the family branches of the tree
It's passed down to a daughter from the mother don't you see

But you never thought about it this cancer of the breast
Yet one day there it was just like a hammer to the chest
You feel the room close 'round you, you feel your heart grow still
And now the thought of going on just takes all of your will

Light a candle Angelina
Don't let the rain drag you down
There'll be blue skies come the morning
And what you've lost may still be found
By keeping two feet on the ground

There are questions you can't answer and feelings you can't name
Will you live to see your children grown will your daughter face the same
Some days you feel an aching that digs down to your bones
And you feel the weight of all your years and you feel so all alone

But now you get up to another day 'cause that's how the thing is done
And you tell yourself to fight the fight until the battle is won
It's for that young boy playing football and your baby girl's first dance
It's for High school graduation and a wedding day's romance

Light a candle Angelina
Don't let the rain drag you down
There'll be blue skies come the morning
And what you've lost may still be found
By keeping two feet on the ground

Live like its' the only life you'll ever live
Don't believe in all the stories you are told
Take the time to love and to forgive
And remember there are only these moments we hold

Light a candle Angelina
Don't let the rain drag you down
There'll be blue skies come the morning
And what you've lost may still be found
By keeping two feet on the ground
