Too Far From The Candle

from Catch A Cloud by Edward Rogers

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Catch A Cloud, Edward Rogers' eighth solo album, comes in a cool gatefold case. It is a soul-searching, stripped-down personal statement, a trippy swirl of music and ideas, observations of what was going on around him at the time, which influenced both the music and the lyrics of the songs.

lyrics

THE CANDLE LOWERS ITS LAST LIGHT
SOMETIME WELL AFTER MIDNIGHT
SHADOWS OF DARKNESS SUDDENLY APPEARS
TIME TO RELIVE – ALL OUR FEARS

SOMETHING ABOUT THIS NIGHT
NO LONGER SEE THE CAT EYES LITE
SCARRED BY WHAT WE NO LONGER SEE
CASTS A SENSE OF TERROR OVER YOU N ME

IS THIS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET BURNED BY THE CANDLE
WHEN THE HEART’S DESTROYED TOO HARD TO HANDLE
IS THIS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET BURNED BY THE CANDLE
CAN’T AFFORD OR REVEAL – ANOTHER SCANDAL

CHINESE WHISPERS ARE ALL ONE HEARS
EVERY NIGHT AS THE MOON STARTS TO DISAPPEAR
SHYNESS OF WILL LEAVES A SHADOW OF DOUBT
SOMETHING TO NEVER – FEEL SO GOOD ABOUT

COMING BACK TO THIS CRAZY WORLD
LISTEN TO EVERY RUMOR HEARD
EVER SOUND YOU MAKE - CAN YOU BARE THE HEARTBREAK
NO VICTIMS LEFT WHO CAN REPEAT YOUR MISTAKE

IS THIS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU MOVE TOO FAR FROM THE CANDLE
WHEN THE HEART’S DESTROYED TOO HARD TO HANDLE
IS THIS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET – BURNED BY THE CANDLE
CAN’T EXPOSE OR AFFORD – ANOTHER SCANDAL

PARANOIA ALL AROUND
MAKE SURE THE BODIES CAN’T BE FOUND
DON’T WANT STORIES TO CONFLICT
OR EVIDENCE FOUND TOO PERFECT
WANT THE VICTIM TO BE CROWNED
AND BURIED OUT BY THE OLDE PLAYGROUND
THE OLD PLAYGROUND

THE CANDLE NO LONGER PROVIDES THE LIGHT
SOMETIME WELL LONG AFTER MIDNIGHT
AWARENESS OF DARKNESS SUDDENLY APPEARS
TIME TO AWAY N RELIVE ALL OF OUR FEARS

IS THIS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU MOVE TOO FAR FROM THE CANDLE
WHEN THE HEART’S DESTROYED BY TIME/TOO HARD NOT TO HANDLE
IS THIS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET BURNED BY THE CANDLE
AND YOU’RE LEFT ALONE, ALONE WITH FEAR AND SCANDAL
NOTHING BUT FEAR AND SCANDAL
