Light A Candle by Sammy J


SAMMY J:
My darling wife, I hope this letter finds you well
It's been three months since I've seen you, and the nights are cold as hell
I shot a man today, I saw his eyes before he fell
War does crazy things, am I an animal as well?
But won't you kiss the children, tell them Daddy's coming home
And remember what I told you
I'll be there to hold you
If you light a candle for me
Light a candle for me
Your darling husband...
ALI McGREGOR:
Dear...
BOTH:
Charlie
ALI McGREGOR:
I just received your letter
I wanted not to cry but only crying makes it better
I lie awake and think of you, at times a memory patches
And I would light you a candle, only... I can't find the matches
I thought you'd left them in the stationary dish
Won't you tell me where to find them and I will fulfill your wish
And I'll, I'll light a candle for you
SAMMY J:
Light a candle for me
ALI McGREGOR:
I'll light a candle for you
SAMMY J:
Light a candle for me
ALI McGREGOR:
Your darling...
SAMMY J:
Dear...
BOTH:
Judith
SAMMY J:
They're where they always were
Third drawer down beneath the sink, if you'd just taken time to think
And look, you would have found them I'm surprised you didn't see
Or you could have bought some new ones, bought some new matches for me
This war that we resort to, it's a terrifying task
But I came here to support you - is it too much to ask
That you...
ALI McGREGOR:
I'll...
SAMMY J:
Light a fucking candle for me
ALI McGREGOR:
I'll light a candle for you
SAMMY J:
Light a candle for me
BOTH:
Now a year has passed and I'm still yearning for your touch
A candle burning isn't much, but it's enough to let you see
There's still a light inside of me
ALI McGREGOR:
Dear Charlie, I did what you desire
I lit a candle for you but it set the house on fire
There was nothing left to salvage, but the children are okay
And kindly Tony Lumbkin has agreed to let us stay
SAMMY J:
Judith, don't you fucking dare end up in Tony Lumbkin's bed
If I find out that he's touched you there'll be trouble up ahead
ALI McGREGOR:
Charlie, you're the one that went away and left me all alone
If you're worried about our marriage then why aren't you coming home?
SAMMY J:
Because I trust you! Is that foolish? Are there things we should have said?
Well, I'll come home soon, my darling - in a box, when I am dead!
Then you'll...
ALI McGREGOR:
Then I'll...
SAMMY J:
You'd light a candle for me
ALI McGREGOR:
I'll light a candle for you
SAMMY J:
You'd light a candle for me
ALI McGREGOR:
I'll light a candle for you
SAMMY J: (spoken)
"Ah, g'day, Charlie, it's Tony Lumbkin here. Look, mate, probably best for everyone if you stop sending Judith those letters, okay, mate? I mean, you've been away for fifteen months now and a woman can only go so long on her own. The kids say hello, by the way. They've started calling me Dad, it's very cute. Anyway, I've enclosed a can of Spam because Judith's getting enough meat here on her own - if you know what I mean, haha!... I mean sex, let's get that straight. Anyway, mate, you take care now, okay?
SAMMY J: (sung)
Would you...
BOTH:
Light a candle for me?
