In the gloom and darkness of the night, when there is a sudden flash of light, a person will recognize objects; in the same way, the one with a flash of insight sees according to reality--"This is how sorrow works; this is how it arises; this is how it can come to an end; this is the path leading to that end."
Are you gonna be a gambler and deal? Are you gonna be a doctor and heal? or go to heaven, and touch God's face? Are you gonna be a dreamer who sleeps? Are you gonna be a sinner who weeps? Or an angel, under grace? I'll lay down on your bed of coals. Offer up my heart and soul. But in return, I want you to burn, Burn for me, baby. Like a candle in the night. Oh burn, burn for me, burn for me. Laugh for me, cry for me. Pray for me, fly for me. Live for me, but die for love.
Do you wanna be a poet and write? Do you wanna be an actor up in lights? Do you wanna be soldier, and fight for love? Do you wanna travel the world? Do you wanna be a diver for pearls? Or climb the mountain, and touch the clouds above? Be anyone you want to be. Bring to life your fantasies. But I want something in return, I want you to burn, burn for me, baby. Like a candle in the night. Oh burn, burn for me, burn for me.
