TORCH SONG by Alan Bonner

I think its time for me to stop
Carrying this torch
It's burning me
I think it's time for me to stop
Carrying this torch
It's getting heavy

Cause it seems to me , you're not aware, you hardly know I'm here
You don't see the light I shine
And it seems to me, that you rely on someone else's torch to guide you through the night

I think it's time for me to stop
Carrying this torch
it's getting light
And as the first birds start to sing
Singing to me,
They tell me that I'll be alright

Cause it seems to me, that anything you ever felt for me wasn't real just fabrication,
And stupidly, I wore my heart with pride upon my sleeve
Believed my imagination

But every time I try to put you down
Something stops me I can't set you to the ground.
Can you hear it, can you hear that sound?
Can you hear that sound of the fire going out
Of the fire going out

I think it's time for me to stop,
Carrying this torch.
It's burning me.
