[Intro]
C  Am  C  Am

[Verse 1]
C           Am
What'd you forget?
C       Am
Got a light?
C       Am   G
I know you - you're - you're shivering
F                   G
It's nothing they turned off my heat
F                   G
And I'm just a little weak on my feet

[Chorus]
G                   Am     G
Would you light my candle?

[Verse 2]
N.C.
What are you staring at?
C    Am       C            Am    C   Am
Nothing, your hair in the moonlight
G
You look familiar
G       
Can you make it?
F            G
Just haven't eaten much today
              F             
At least the room stopped spinning
G
Anyway. What?
C    Am        C     Am
Nothing, your smile reminded me of
C    Am                     G
I always remind people of - who is she?
F                      G
She died. Her name was April.
G
It's out again
F                G
Sorry about your friend

[Chorus]
G                   Am        G
Would you light my candle?

[Interlude]
G
Well
G
Yeah. Ow!
G
Oh, the wax - it's
G
Dripping! I like it between my-
G
Fingers, I figured ...
G           C
Oh, well. Goodnight ...
C  Am  

[Verse 3]
C     Am
It blew out again?
        C            Am
No - I think that I dropped my stash
  C          Am       C       Am
I know I've seen you out and about
         C      Am
When I used to go out,
      G
Your candle's out
   F              G
I'm illin' - I had it when I walked in the door
F              G 
It was pure - is it on the floor?
  A
The floor?
A                         G    
They say I have the best ass
       A                   G
Below 14th street. Is it true?
 G
What?
A
You're staring again.
G
Oh no.
G            N.C
I mean you do - have a nice -
          C          Am
I mean - you look familiar
C          Am
Like your dead girlfriend?
C         Am
Only when you smile.
G
But I'm sure I've seen you somewhere else - 
F                 G
Do you go to the Cat Scratch Club?
       F              G
That's where I work - I dance
        F                 G
Yes! They used to tie you up - 
N.C.
It's a living
 F                  G
I didn't recognize you without the handcuffs

[Chorus]
G                   Am       G
We could light the candle
G                      Am       G
Oh won't you light the candle?

[Verse 4]
C       Am      C         Am
Why don't you forget that stuff
C              Am       C     
You look like you're sixteen
     Am                C     Am
I'm nineteen - but I'm old for my age
      C      Am
I'm just born to be bad
  C         Am         G
I once was born to be bad
          F
I used to shiver like that
     G
I have no heat - I told you
     F
I used to sweat
   G
I got a cold
G                      F
Uh huh, I used to be a junkie
F
But now and then I like to
G
Uh huh
G
Feel good
F 
Oh, here it - um
F
What's that?
G
Candy bar wrapper


[Chorus]
G                   Am      G
We could light the candle
G                          Am       G
Oh, what'd you do with my candle?

[Verse 5]
C                Am
That was my last match
C            Am      C
Our eyes'll adjust, thank
Am
God for the moon
C       Am         C        Am
Maybe it's not the moon at all
          C                       Am
I hear Spike Lee's shooting down the street
           C Am
Bah humbug ... Bah humbug
F
Cold hands
G
Yours too.
F              G
Big. Like my father's
F
Do you wanna dance?
G
With you?
F         G
No - with my father
G
I'm Roger
C    Am
They call me
C    Am        C
They call me Mimi

C
