Lyrics

Light a roman candle with me
Just a roman candle
You can wear your sandals and I'll pour you just one cup of tea
Then you can go and rest
You haven't seen my best, so

Just spend an evening with me
Just a lazy evening
Then you could be leaving or we could stay and talk until three
I will think it's magic and I'll hope you'll agree, so

Light a roman candle with me
Just a roman candle
Just a perfect apple

Light a roman candle with me
Just a roman candle
Just a perfect apple
If we were honest and both wrote a sonnet together
A sandwich with everything on it
At least we would know that the sparks didn't glow
But we owe it to ourselves to try
So we aim and ignite
So often I call and I plead with you: "Give me a chance!"
It's not that often that I understand
The ins and the outs of what's wrong and what's right
So don't think of tomorrow night
Oh, I know, it goes on, it gets old
But for now we're young, we smell good, we're alone

You look for a legend
I'm looking for common ground
Your heart isn't breaking
And mine isn't making a sound
Oh I know, it goes on, it gets old
Oh I know, it goes on, it gets old
Light a roman candle with me
Just a roman candle
Just a perfect apple
