Lyrics Light my Candle

What'd you forget?
I know you, you're
Got a light? you're shivering
It's nothing they turned off my heat and I'm just a little
Weak on my feet
Would you light my candle?
What are you staring at?
Your hair in the moonlight
You look familiar
Can you make it?
Just haven't eaten much today at least the room stopped spinning anyway
Your smile reminded me of
I always remind people of
Who is she?
She died
Her name was April
It's out again
Sorry 'bout your friend
Would you light my candle?
Yeah, aw
Oh, the wax, it's
I like it between my
Fingers, I figured oh well, goodnight
It blew out again?
No, I think that
I dropped my stash
I know I've seen you out and about when I used to go out
Your candle's out
I'm illin', I had it when
I walked in the door it was pure
Is it on the floor?
They say that
The floor?
I have the best ass
Below forteenth street is it true?
Oh what?
Oh no, I mean you do
You're staring again have a nice, I mean
You look familiar
Only when you smile
Like your dead girlfriend? but I'm sure I've seen
You somewhere else
Do you go to the
Cat Scratch Club?
That's where I work, I dance
Help me look
They used to tie you up
It's a living
I didn't recognize you
Without the handcuffs
We could light the candle
Oh won't you light the candle?
Why don't you forget that stuff
You look like you're sixteen
I'm nineteen but I'm old for my age
I'm just born to be bad
I once was born to be bad
I used to shiver like that
I have no heat, I told you
I used to sweat
I got a cold
Huh huh
I used to be a junkie
But now and then
I like to feel good huh huh
Oh here it
It's a candy bar wrapper
What's that?
We could light the candle
Oh what'd you do with my candle?
That was my last match
Our eyes will adjust
Thank God for the moon
Maybe it's not the moon at all
I hear Spike Lee's
Shooting down the street
Bah humbug
Bah humbug
Yours too big
Cold hands like my father's
Do you wanna dance?
With you?
No, with my father
I'm Roger
They call me
They call me
