Sometimes A Candle

Sometimes a candle
Can be a torch
I’ll carry this one through the storm
Sometimes a candle
Is the only thing left
When nothing else can keep me warm
Sometimes a candle
Lights the way forward
On an ever-darkening path
Sometimes a candle
Lights the face of a lover
With a softness that nothing else can
Sometimes a candle
Stands up to the wind
Just to show how much it can take
Sometimes a candle
Is the means to a wish
On top of a birthday cake
Close your eyes
Make a wish
Blow it out

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
