about

Epic orchestrated torch song with a distinct arabian flavour set to a dub style beat

lyrics

Alone in the dark
There I saw the tinniest spark
And I watched it burst into flame
I called it love and I gave it it's name

And there I was
Standing at the edges of time
Wondering if there was a chance
That love could be mine

Alone in the dark
There I saw the tinniest spark
And I watched it struggle for life
Balanced on the edge of a knife
Will it die out before it's begun

It seems so pathetic
It seemed so weak
What chance does it have
Against such adversity

Alone in the dark
There I saw the tinniest spark
Willing in the blackest of nights
Wondering if the conditions were right
To set someone's soul alight

You flicker
But you never die
You flicker
But you never die...
