Candle In The Willow Tree

Written by: Char Rothschild

The lilacs and the trees are singing in the breeze, uh huh
The ocean and the moon are singing to the tune, uh huh

I live without the influence of those who blow the candles out,
they show me by their glow so I know the route,
I travel in the morning when the moon is out,
I live in the light, the light that can surprise you in the middle of the night,
the light that hypnotize you when the moon is right.

CHORUS:
And who set these lamps to burn over me,
who put this candle in the willow tree?
It hasn’t yet burned down, but we are not yet free,
so won’t you come and dance with me?

Everyone dancing here has the blessing of my dear, uh huh
May what we see increase and what we suffer cease, uh huh

May we live without the influence of those who blow the candles out,
they show me by their glow so I know the route,
I travel in the morning when the moon is out,
I live in the light, the light that can surprise you in the middle of the night,
the light that hypnotize you when the moon is right.

CHORUS

We’re dancing endlessly until we’re shaky in the knees, uh huh
The candle in the tree comes flickering through the leaves
The lilacs and the trees are singing in the breeze
The ocean and the moon are singing to the tune
Everyone dancing here has the blessing of my dear
May what we see increase and what we suffer cease
We’re dancing endlessly until we’re shaky in the knees, uh huh
The candle in the tree comes flickering through the leaves
Won’t you come and dance with me?
