Eb F Eb F Bb Ab Eb F
 
VERSE 1
     Bb          Dm                     Gm
As a younger girl  you didn't have much
               Gmmaj7        Gm7            Gm6  Eb
There ain't a lot to have on    our side of town
                F     Eb       Gm Gmmaj7 Gm Gmmaj7
The streets are dirty,  we got by
Bb           Dm                   Gm
Then one day   we kinda lost touch
               Gmmaj7          Gm7            Gm6  Eb
You packed and moved away from    our side of town
            F          Eb          Gm Gmmaj7 Gm Gmmaj7 F
You wanted fine things   many can buy
 
 
PRE CHORUS
                           Eb    F
You  found the people with money
                                 Eb  F
Bright lights that turn night to day
                        Fm
Just like a candlelight
 
You're really burnin' bright
                          Gm
But just how long can you stay?
 
 
CHORUS
Eb          F       Eb         F
Burn like a candle, it's your turn to burn
Gm             Gmmaj7            Gm7    Gm6
Fire's  gettin' higher, girl, you got no shame
Eb          F       Eb                  Gm  Bb
Burn like a candle, you'll run out of flame
 
 
VERSE 2
                  Dm                        Gm
Just the other day  I saw you on the street
           Gmmaj7            Gm7          Gm6  Eb
You didn’t know me, you were    flying so high
              F    Eb            Gm  Gmmaj7 Gm Gmmaj7
Your face was empty, head in the sky
    Bb            Dm                           Gm
You looked so thin, no shoes were on your feet
             Gmmaj7             Gm7          Gm6 Eb
Your crystal beads were brighter   than your eyes
           F     Eb              Gm Gmmaj7 Gm Gmmaj7 F
You didn't see me  walk right on by
 
 
PRE CHORUS
                          Eb     F
The trip you're takin' is one-way
                          Eb   F
The train to nowhere goes fast
                        Fm
Just like a candlelight
 
You're really burnin' bright
                          Gm
But just how long can you last?
 
 
CHORUS
Eb          F       Eb         F
Burn like a candle, it's your turn to burn
Gm             Gmmaj7            Gm7    Gm6
Fire's  gettin' higher, girl, you got no shame
Eb          F       Eb                  Gm
Burn like a candle, you'll run out of flame
Eb          F       Eb         F
Burn like a candle, it's your turn to burn
Gm             Gmmaj7            Gm7    Gm6
Fire's  gettin' higher, girl, you got no shame
Eb          F       Eb                  Gm
Burn like a candle, you'll run out of flame
