Trick Candle Flame

You turned me into a trick candle flame, when it flickered you lit a spark; Making me believe again was your aim; When I needed it you gave me acclaim; a soft glow in the midst of the stark; You turned me into a trick candle flame; Embracing everything that wasn’t tame never leaving me alone in the dark; Making me believe again was your aim; Helped me let go of my twisted mind game, rewiring me to ignore every remark; You turned me into a trick candle flame; Finding the fire I needed to reclaim, paving the path for me to embark; Making me believe again was your aim; In doubt you reminded me of my name, believed in my enigmatic trademark; You turned me into a trick candle flame, making me believe again was your aim.
