I Gave My Love a Candle
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


Bonnie Raitt

I gave my love a candle
A promise at life
And I told æ?½m when my number comes up
Winds would fill the sky
Me Iæ?¦ fixinto die
Moving down that same lonesome road
No I donæ?° know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
You didnæ?° have to fool me
You didnæ?° have to lie
My love comes æ??ound like a thief in the night
But only love can make you cry
And we have walked side by side
Moving down that same lonesome road
No I donæ?° know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Your love was like a diamond ride a wave
On a sea that calms my mind
Moving onward to a distant shore
Where the boats sail in a line
We have danced to a fateful rhyme
Moving down the same lonesome road
No I donæ?° know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
You didnæ?° have to fool me, no
You didnæ?° have to lie
If it all came out so ugly
Itæ?¯ only my love that could make you cry
And we have walked side by side
Moving down that same lonesome road
And I still donæ?° know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Ooh ooh ooh
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Holy CRAP... probably one of the most beautiful songs EVER!!  <3 <3

Richard Hart

This, Cry Like a Rainstorm and I Feel the Same are the three shining jewels off this criminally underrated album. As someone who's closer now to the end of the runway than the beginning of it, this gem becomes even more significant than it was all those decades ago.

I feel that, too!

Martha Connerton

This entire album was one of the best ever made in HISTORY. I still listen to it in 2020.
