Warrick Hayes

Sam goes to school in his sister’s shirt
It’s tattered and torn and covered in dirt
Cause it’s a big..... girl’s blouse

Today he turns twelve but it hurts
And it lingers from his toes to his fingers
Cause there’s no light..... in his house

He says “it’s dark and it’s cold and I can’t see
It’s dark and it’s cold and I can’t see
But for my handles.....
Batteries and candles”

Ellie comes home with some cream for her eczema
She’s itching and scratching away at the stigma
Of her mother’s .......fear of heights

She knows that it means that she has no money
Failing to notice difference in detail
Is daylight..... in the night

Cause “It’s dark and it’s cold and I can’t see
It’s dark and it’s cold and I can’t see
But for my handles...
Batteries and candles”

See we can sit, we can watch, we can judge
Safe in the “no this won’t happen to us”
Cause we can have..... what we want

But really we can’t, we can’t carry on
Running on empty in greed and go wrong
Living like...... debutantes

Till it’s dark and it’s cold and we can’t see
It’s dark and it’s cold and we can’t see
It’s dark and it’s cold and we can’t see
(BV) Batteries and candles
It’s dark and it’s cold and we can’t see
(BV) Batteries and candles
It’s dark and it’s cold and we can’t see
(BV) Batteries and candles
It’s dark and it’s cold and we can’t see
But for our handles...
Batteries and candles
