MOTH
(Ann Lister)

I flew too close to the candle
And I think that my wings are aflame
I should never have come so close to you
It seems I won't leave again

Refrain:
There should be some kind of warning
To those of us who fly by night
To beware of the cold air of morning
And to keep away from the light

Oh the light that it cast out was gentle
And I'd been far too long in the cold
And all of the dark seemed so lonely
And all of your welcome seemed gold

And alone outside your window
There's just the pale gleam of far distant stars
You could search for heaven for ever
But at least you'd be safe where you are

Words and music by Anne Lister.
