This song features as the closing track on the John Tams solo album Unity, but was being sung by Coope Boyes and Simpson before that and appears on at least one of their albums too.

Who Will Blow the Candle Out Tonight?

Morning steals, the sunlight peels my eyes
Half a promise sweetened by some lies
A night ago you whispered, "everything will be alright"
Who will blow the candle out tonight

I must be getting easier to leave
I knew that this was too good to believe
If you ever change your mind, Iíll never let you from my sight
Who will blow the candle out tonight

It takes a fool to realise too late
Time and tide they very seldom wait
You canít hold back the morning or hide away the light
Who will blow the candle out tonight

It takes a while to settle to the task
Pour another brandy from the flask
So hereís to absent lovers
Who venture from the light
Who will blow the candle out tonight?
