LYRICS TO CANDLES IN THE RAIN

Little sisters of the sun lit

candles in the rain,

fed the world on oats and raisins

candles in the rain

li the fire to the soul

who never knew his friend

meher baba lives again

candles in the rain

to be there is to remember

lay it down again

lay down

lay down

lay it down again

men can live as brothers

candles in the rain....



LYRICS TO LAY DOWN (CANDLES IN THE RAIN)

CHORUS

lay down lay down, let it all down

let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown

lay down lay down, let it all down

let your white birds smile up at the ones who stand and frown

we were so close, there was no room

we bled inside each others wounds

we had caught the same disease

and we all sang songs of peace

CHORUS

so raise the candles high cause if you

don't we could stay black against the night

oh raise them higher again and if you

do we could stay dry against the rain

CHORUS

we were so close there was no room

we bled inside each others wounds

we had caught the same disease

and we all sang songs of peace

some came to sing, some came to pray

some came to keep the dark away

so raise the candles high

cause if you don't we could stay

black against the sky

oh oh raise them higher again

and if you do we could stay dry against the rain

CHORUS
