Daughter - Candles Lyrics




That boy, take me away, into the night
Out of the hum of the street lights and into a forest
I'll do whatever you say to me in the dark
Scared I'll be torn apart by a wolf in mask of a familiar name on a birthday card

Blow out all the candles, blow out all the candles
"You're too old to be so shy," he says to me so I stay the night
Just a young heart confusing my mind, but we're both in silence
Wide-eyed, both in silence
Wide-eyed, like we're in a crime scene

Well I have brittle bones it seems
I bite my tongue and I torch my dreams
Have a little voice to speak with
And a mind of thoughts and secrecy
Things cannot be reversed, we learn from the times we are cursed
Things cannot be reversed, learn from the ones we fear the worst
And learn from the ones we hate the most how to

Blow out all the candles, blow out all the candles
"You're too old to be so shy," he says to me so I stay the night
Just a young heart confusing my mind, but we're both in silence
Wide-eyed, both in silence
Wide-eyed

Cause we both know I'll never be your lover
I only bring the heat
Company under cover
Filling space in your sheets
Well I'll never be a lover
I only bring the heat
Company under cover
Filling space in your sheets, in your sheets

So, please just blow out all the candles, blow out all the candles
"You're too old to be so shy," he says to me so I stay the night
It's just a young heart confusing my mind, but we're both in silence
Wide-eyed, both in silence
Wide-eyed, like we're in a crime scene

    A typhoon hits in our area. Heavy rains and winds plus I'm a pluviophile. Christmas songs were missed but this is the first song that popped into my mind.

  2. Blake Ramsey

    Yo it's difficult to see the lyrics, so u should fix that

    Blake Ramsey

    Yeah but does he really want it to be difficult for people to see the lyrics? I would think some constructive criticism would help not hurt

    Blake Ramsey

    I'm not trying to be a dick. I mean it's nice that you've made these videos. But all I'm saying is its difficult to see the lyrics and u could potentially improve the quality of the video making more people happier

    Blake Ramsey

    I said "he" because i didn't know you made the video

  3. xXCrusherXx

    Her voice is very similar to Florence Welch’s. Love them both.

  4. agostina cappanari

    why so many dislikes???

  5. Xemmeryth

  7. Derek Rogers#1

  8. Šarūnas Gabalis

  9. Fan Annie

    I was 15 when i first heard this song

  10. Caroline Anderson

    This is what happened to me, essentially

  11. Neil

    first time hearing this song when I left my playlist on random while sleeping. being introduced to Daughter while half asleep half dreaming was pretty dope

  12. Igor L

    3,4 k people looks boobs and bootyes, not listening to music and there`s no booties here, only pure vocal, music and lyrics pleasure

  13. Hariyali malkani

    "Scared i will be torn apart by a wolf in mask of a familiar name on the birthday card"....This line gets to be everytime 😭❤

  14. A D

    It’s kind of weird this video has like... romantic pictures, considering it’s about sexual abuse.

  15. Rey Skywalker

    I cry myself to sleep with these songs

  16. HoodieGhost

    I hate that I still love this song

  17. Bella Schiller

    7 years later. this song gives me so much nostalgia

  18. Denise Lucas

  19. Michelle Lee

    This song fits my situation perfectly and it’s bringing me flashbacks... fuck

  20. Nemo Fish

    This song soothes my soul.

  21. erneststals

    Good luck with Karaoke

  22. JussForver

    Jez Dior version better

  23. Ahmed ALAMI CHAHBOUNE

    I don't have feelings anymore.

  24. FinalfantasyFRANtic

    I listen to this song again and again. But still, I can't help feeling pain listening to this. And I've had enough of that in (my love) life. Still a beautiful song, though. :)

  25. sun flower

    This song hurts and mends my soul at the same time. Though I know this song is about losing your virginity to an individual who doesn’t love you back, and will never love you back, it also manages to portray a message of sexual assault. When she sings “you’re too old to be so shy” it sort of seems like an older individual is talking to a child, trying to force sexual behavior on them. Also, in the beginning, when she says “That boy, take me away into the night, out of the hum of the street lights and into a forest” it reminds me of someone sort of stealing them away to a secluded place to take advantage of them. When she says “ I’ll never be your lover “ to me, it could also portray the life of the child after being molested, trying to heal but forever having trust issues in future relationships and forever questioning if their spouse really loves them, and isn’t using them just for sex. This song really speaks to me because of this, and because of my past with sexual assault. It’s hard to listen to at times, but sometimes helps when I need something to relate to and cry to. Music is just so beautiful, in the way that it can be interpreted differently by so many people and speak to people in different ways to help them heal.

    A.R.M.Yバネッサ

    I just wrote a comment about how i see the song about sexual assault too. The crime scene part too. Like he knows he shouldn't have done it and she feels like a crime happened.
    This song is always killing me it hits so close to home

  26. Kller GG

    Vim pela Sasa

  27. TheTrashBoi

    This fits Life is Strange 2 so well...

  28. Evil Seeds Grow Naturally

    Music for melodramatic 15-year olds.


    Awesome.

  29. The Tim

    I remember listening to this when it was stuck at 50k views. Glad people are growing some ears

  30. Georgous Snow saint fully sinner dragon killer

    I'm not shy I just don't trust others easily with myself and that's learnt discernment not judgment

  31. dawn ella27

    The part where she equates what They ve done to being in a crime scene is so raw. Doing something intimate and loss of innocence in a way does carry with it the isolated feeling of stumbling onto a crime scene. Where you have the out of body sensation of not committing the crime but feel tainted none the less

  32. blase

    Everytime I listen to this song I cry

  33. RaikCorn Lyirk

    Hello, here in 2019

  35. maybe a procrastinator

    *I'll never be your lover
    I only bring the heat
    Company under covers
    Filling space in your sheets*
    I was in this bad relationship a few years ago and this part always gets to me
    I guess even when you move on the memories still linger :\

  36. John S

    I've been listening to this song since 2014. How time fliesss and I'm getting old. Geez!

  60. boring girl

    we tried to work out again, and we know we’re falling apart. it’s only a matter of how long we’ll try to keep it alive.

  61. Squarehead Baggins

    this song makes me feel sad about things that have never happened to me

  62. GhostlyJorg

    Americans obsessing over "purity", "loss of innocence = loss of virginity" and that kind of religious leftover claptrap

  63. Nookie Ely

    I'm working on an art project that requires fake flowers and Japanese lanterns and then this song comes on and now I'm just sobbing. So now I can't concentrate on art or anything and am just thinking back on past relationships. Thanks Daughter.

  78. F i g u r a t i v e l y

    I love the indie corner of the music industry... It's always been my favorite. Indie, alternative, and 80's rock, because David Bowie is king.

    blue rose hindsight is 20/20 when your with someone you can only go off there words and actions and fuckboiis will lie and say whatever so you never know till it's to late

  87. camilaxcx

    That boy, take me away, into the night
    Out of the hum of the street lights and into a forest
    I'll do whatever you say to me in the dark
    Scared I'll be torn apart by a wolf in mask of a familiar name on a birthday card

    [Chorus]
    Blow out all the candles, blow out all the candles
    "You're too old to be so shy," he says to me so I stay the night
    Just a young heart confusing my mind, but we're both in silence
    Wide-eyed, both in silence
    Wide-eyed, like we're in a crime scene

    [Verse 2]
    Well I have brittle bones it seems
    I bite my tongue and torch my dreams
    Have a little voice to speak with
    And a mind of thoughts and secrecy
    Things cannot be reversed, we learn from the times we are cursed
    Things cannot be reversed, learn from the ones we fear the worst
    And learn from the ones we hate the most how to

    [Chorus]
    Blow out all the candles, blow out all the candles
    "You're too old to be so shy," he says to me so I stay the night
    Just a young heart confusing my mind, but we're both in silence
    Wide-eyed, both in silence
    Wide-eyed

    [Bridge]
    Cause we both know I'll never be your lover
    I only bring the heat
    Company under cover
    Filling space in your sheets
    Well I'll never be a lover
    I only bring the heat
    Company under cover
    Filling space in your sheets, in your sheets

    [Chorus]
    So, please just blow out all the candles, blow out all the candles
    "You're too old to be so shy," he says to me so I stay the night
    It's just a young heart confusing my mind, but we're both in silence
    Wide-eyed, both in silence
    Wide-eyed, like we're in a crime scene

  88. Jonas Gabriel

    I don't know why... but the picture in "wide eyed, both in silence." really gets me.

    My heart...

  91. Yatharth Rai

    There's one guy, who loves a girl. This girl rejects his advances and falls for a handsome, dashing guy. They date for some months, the girl has fallen head over heels for him, but the guy only keeps her because she's beautiful. The girl has been saving herself for that one special guy, and she thinks this handsome guy is the one. They get intimate, and it goes on, until one day, the guy breaks up with her, because he's found someone else.

    The song is about the girl and her broken love, but then again, there was another guy, who would've loved her like his own life.

    Most of the times, the easier it is to get someone, we take them for granted.

    Only if people didn't take love for granted, only if people could understand other people's feelings, only if. The world would be so much simpler.

  92. SyncopatedProgress

    A karaoke version, along with a guitar lesson, can be found on my channel :)

  93. Nostalgia_xo

    I am so gratful for finding this song 7 years ago... it still feels like the first time hearing this song 💕

  94. Hans Günther

    One might say the drum beat sounding like a heart beat was cheesy and maybe they are right, but...I think it's actually beautiful.

  95. Stinkyremy

    All these people who are explaining the song like one person loosing their virginity is a momentous moment.
    people have been fucking for millennia,, we are all a product of fucking, fucking for the first time or the 100th time is no more or less special than birth and death, it's just nature.

  96. Veronika Lněničková

    I gave myself to a wrong boy. It was my own choice, but it was him who hurt me. This song reminds me of it, but it doesn't hurt anymore. I'm not shaking when I remember it, I'm not sick of myself anymore. I found my worth, I value myself more than ever and I'm stronger because I made mistake and that's alright. So if anyone of you is feeling horrible just as I used to, you can send me a message and I will hold your imaginary hand. Because just as it's ok to make mistakes, it's ok to ask for help.
    I really love this song. It's painfully calming and it helped me so much to realize I am not a toy.

  97. August J

    Eu procurei essa música por tanto tempo graças a Life is Strange é o aleatório do YouTube eu achei depois de 7 anos.... muito feliz!
