Lyrics sample

A candle isn’t simply

Wax, a wick, a flame.

It’s do I love my neighbour,

How I play the game.

How I treat my family

And people I don’t know,

(How I feel within)

How I feel within my heart

And where I choose to go.

Different faiths and nations,

Muslim, Christian, Jew.

Different creeds and colours

Underneath the blue.

In our hearts we long for peace

And safety for our own.

(Show us how to see)

Show us how to see the world

As everybody’s home.
