living dolls
lyrics by Penelope Houston/ music by P. Houston, Mel Peppas

Candle, candle, burning cold and bright
You burn the shadows from the night
With every blaze that you ignite
The sound of tearing silk

we stand unnoticed in the crowd
Our flames are crying out so loud
With faces full of hope and proud
Just like two living dolls

Behind the silent walls no one sings, no one calls
Behind the shuttered door shadows dancing on the floor
Behind the mirrored glass a hidden eye is watching me
the words come thick and fast but no one hears to turn the key

Candle, candle, burning cold and bright
You burn the shadows from the night
With every flame you light
The faces of two living dolls

A tree stands lonely on the ground
It¹s blossoms wither, turning brown
how many seasons will go round
Behind these silent doors

Behind the silent walls no one sings, no one calls
Behind the shuttered door shadows dancing on the floor
Behind the mirrored glass a hidden eye is watching me
the words come thick and fast but no one hears to turn the key
