(Vocal) This song is gospel, folk, blues, and many other genres. Watching the candlelight visual at Virginia Tech, it hit home. I dedicate it to all the victims' families and friends, it's a song of reflection, dispair, and hope.

Story behind the song
We all get depressed from time to time, but after what happened on the 16th of April 2007 at Virginia Tech, I felt the pain of the nation, you see, I too have a son in University, not there but it could happen anywhere, it sure hit home. I felt the pain and dispair, and even though this song needed refining, and in my opinion not complete yet, I felt compelled to release it in it's present state and dedicated to the victim's families and friends, may we all learn from it. I was watching the candlelight visual tonight, very touched by it all.
Lyrics
Candle of Light (Evan Paul Kozaris) Verse 1 Candle of Light, burning thoughts within' my mind, Reminding someone life had left behind, Dark lonely room, I am best there in the gloom, Searching for meaning I will never find. Verse 2 Candle of Light, painting pictures in my eyes, Revealing images of silent cries, Staring at me, four grey walls appear to see, Looking, at me, they cannot sympathise, Spoken mostly... Candle of Light, I need a little joy in my life, So come on everybody, we rehearsed this song long enough, Are you ready? I wanna feel the power. Chorus Little joy within my sadness, will you ever, find your way, Little joy within my sadness, you've been gone, for many a day. Verse 3 Candle of Light, now you flicker inside, This lonely room where shadows hide, Candle of Light, you have been so very kind, Reminding someone life had left behind, Mostly spoken, Yea, left behind, without joy in my life, So won't you help me, help me sing this song, Come on everybody, let's do it again, Is everybody ready? Are you ready? I wanna feel the power, raise me up, Chorus 2 Little joy within my sadness, will you ever, find your way, Little joy within my sadness, you've been gone, for many a day, Little joy within my sadness, will you ever, stop these tears, Little joy within my sadness, you've been gone for many years, (lead voice adlibs) Ad lib in whisper, etc.
