1.
Before The Rain ============= Seven years it's been Since I last held your hand Seven years it's been Hard for me to live Without you… Somewhere deep inside I know there is light In the night In the night… Through the cul-de-sac I will go back To the night before the rain Through the cul-de-sac I will go back To the night before the rain Before the rain… Still I don't know what happened On that dark, lonely night The sidewalk was broken And the shadows were deeper Thank I had ever seen in my life In my life… Yet somehow I just knew I could feel Feel you Somehow I could feel I could still feel you Somehow I could feel… Through the cul-de-sac I will go back To the night before the rain Through the cul-de-sac I will go back To the night before the rain Before the rain… There's a whisper Just a whisper of pain And in the darkness I'll wrap myself in shadows So could I could remain I could remain Out of the rain Yes, I will remain Out of the rain I must remain Out of the rain Out of the rain… Through the cul-de-sac I will go back To the night before the rain Through the cul-de-sac I will go back To the night before the rain Before the rain That night That night before the rain That night before the rain Before the rain Before the rain Before the rain… Before the rain… Before the rain… Still I don't know what happened On that dark, lonely night…
2.
Fading Away =========== Fading low is the light As I crawl off into the night I know this isn't the time But I'm falling down the line Away from my past Away at last Away from my past Away at last… But what did we say On that beautiful day When all the lights came on We noticed they were gone But isn't that just the way? When you're fading away When you're fading away… Coming forward, forward in the line As we perform this perfect crime Oh Mother, where is the sky? Oh General, General why must I die? I want to live now You talked always of how I want to live now When you talk of how What did they say On that dirty day When all the lights went out We were ordered not to route But you know it's just the way What can I say? I'm fading away I'm fading away I'm fading away Fading away…
3.
Back To You ========== In the darkness I feel the light On my face It's night And in this darkness It don't seem right On the face Of my troubled eyes And I don't know When I'll ever see you again And I don't know If I'll ever make through And I'll never ever Get back to you Maybe in the end This is all that we can do… So in this darkness I can feel All that left behind me In the mess Behind me in that mess Find me Don't mind me Don't mind me Don't mind me I'm a mess Can you leave me to rest Please don't mind me And I'll never get back Back to you I'll never get back Back to you Back to you
4.
Away From The Dark ================= Will you remember all the times we shared Away from the dark? Will you remember everthing we did Away from the dark? Or must I restate The question My question? Running away Away from the dark Will you remember all the times that we shared Away from the dark? Will you you remember everything that we did Away from the dark?
5.
The Love Song ============ Once I was all alone But now I've found a home I've felt pain for so long, now So I must move on… Outside is a calm night And the people are dancing in the light I know everthing will be alright, now So I can sleep tight Below down in the streets This is where you & I can meet I love you so much, now I don't know what I'd do if you leave I love you so much, now I don't know what I'd do if you leave I love you so much, now I don't know what I'd do if you leave
6.
In Your Arms ========== If there was a way I could talk to you I'd show you the stars I've been out all day Running to you To show you the stars… But life is a long road And the night is dark & cold So tonight you sit on the bed Ghosts flying through your head You're alone and I'm far away But tonight I wish I could stay In your arms The night is all you have When you're alone But we'll make it if we try Together in our arms Together through the storm Together in our arms Life is a long road When you don't know But we'll make it if we try Together in our arms Together through the storm Together in our arms And life is a long road When you don't know But we'll make it if we try Together in our arms Together through the storm Together in our arms And night is dark cold When you've no home And we'll make it if we try Together in our arms Together through the storm Together in our arms Tonight you sit on the bed With the ghosts flying through your head You're alone and I'm far away But tonight I wish I could stay… 'Cos tonight you sit on the bed With ghosts flying through your head You're alone and I'm far away But tonight I wish I could stay In your arms In your arms In your arms In your arms…
7.
I'd Die For You ============ I don't know why I cried I don't know what I did tonight I don't know why I died But I do know I have tried And it seems all my dreams Came crashing too soon And I know that in the end I'd die for you So this is here to stay So this is what lovers say And this is torn away For this is dying today And it seems that our dreams Came crashing true blue And I know that in the end I would die for you I knew when I came I knew that I was the same I know all the shame And I know just what I became But it seems that all your dreams Came crashing too soon And I know that in the end I'd die for you I would die for you I'd die for you
8.
Titan Spring ========== We once ventured to Titan And left our moon behind Both of us feeling enlightened Trusting ourselves flying blind Blind to the power of gravity The binding of Saturn's rings That robbed us of our velocity When we crashed on that Titan spring Cracks in the ice were forming I could see a new world below When suddenly without warning You slipped on the nitrogen snow I listened all the way down You were screaming into your comm And then there wasn't a sound "Oh my god it's so beautiful" Those were the first words you said "Under the ice it's wonderfuf There's a crystal sky overhead" So packing up our provisions I ventured onto the ice To locate your last position And find Titan's paradise
9.
Vanguard Of Fate ============== The vanguard The vanguard The vanguard of fate Vanguard of fate Vanguard of fate
10.
Don't Refrain =========== Twenty-nine years it's been so long Since I felt the rain or heard a song Twnety-nine maybe more That I've been in pain looking out this door Where can I go now Out into this dark world, my friend And where can I go now Now that I'm free Free to be anything in the end Don't stop to patronize Don't stop the tears in my eyes Don't stop all the pain Don't remain Don't refrain Don't stop to patronize Don't stop the tears in my eyes Don't stop all the pain Don't remain Don't refrain The road to hell is paved with good intensions And we walk this road of our own free will Our choices are our only constraints They're a prison of our own making So I walk the road encumbered by this freedom Hoping to choose the next destined path Don't stop to patronize Don't stop the tears in my eyes Don't stop all the pain Don't remain Don't refrain Don't stop to patronize Don't stop the tears in my eyes Don't stop all the pain Don't remain Don't refrain Don't stop to patronize Don't stop the tears in my eyes Don't stop all the pain Don't refrain And don't remain…

about

A live performance featuring newer songs, old songs dug out from the Candle vault, & a couple of improvisations. Again, Candle logged onto an online streaming service with no intention of worrying about an audience, plugged in his guitar, & bore his soul for all to hear.

Vanguard Of Fate is a chronicle of that performance.

See You In The Shadows…
