WHO WILL BLOW THE CANDLE OUT TONIGHT?
(John Tams)

Morning steals, the sunlight peels my eyes
Half a promise sweetened by some lies
A night ago you whispered, "everything will be all right"
Who will blow the candle out tonight
Who will blow the candle out tonight

I must be getting easier to leave
I knew that this was too good to believe
If you ever change your mind, I'll never let you from my sight
Who will blow the candle out tonight
Who will blow the candle out tonight

It takes a fool to realise too late
Time and tide they very seldom wait
You can't hold back the morning or hide away the light
Who will blow the candle out tonight
Who will blow the candle out tonight

It takes a while to settle to the task
Pour another brandy from the flask
So here's to absent lovers who've ventured from the light
Who will blow the candle out tonight
Who will blow the candle out tonight
Who will blow the candle out tonight

(by John Tams)
Hobson's Choice Music

Found at the Coope, Boyes & Simpson site, except that site lists the last half line as "who shelter from the light," but when I listened on YouTube (here), it certainly sounded like "who've ventured..." -- and that makes more sense, too.

Now, chords anyone?

Claire
