Lyrics

And now the flame is out, but the light burns on
No one ever said he was bigger than his songs
So few ever knew the heart inside the man
But he gave himself away as only poets can

He took the stories of his people and gave them back in rhyme
But for the pleasures of the hearth there was never enough time
He said one day he'd quit and then he would come home
But there was always one more stage, always one more road

The candle's burning at both ends, it's burning in the middle
There's no time to stop between the guitar and the fiddle
A crazy tune, a crazy time you know the words were true
Smiles lit their eyes but all he ever saw was you

And the road finally claimed him like a sailor lost at sea
Setting sail on the horizon that would not let him be
Following a star that drew him like a flame
And though he loved you so well it was not the same

The candle's burning at both ends, it's burning in the middle
There's no time to stop between the guitar and the fiddle
A crazy tune, a crazy time you know the words were true
Smiles lit their eyes but all he ever saw was you

The candle's burning at both ends, it's burning in the middle
There's no time to stop between the guitar and the fiddle
A crazy tune, a crazy time you know the words were true
Smiles lit their eyes but all he ever saw was you
