What's does this song mean?


Recommended Posts

My friend introduced me to this absolutely beautiful song, but I can't point out the meaning. I've heard it's about a girl losing her virginity but some of the lyrics don't fit....

Candleburn by Dishwalla

on Vineland past the candle shrine that burns on every night

for someone

she lets herself go

like an angel in the snow

she lays down on her back

down on her back - she goes

take me over when I'm gone

take me over make me strong

take me over when I'm gone

will they burn for me

on Vineland past the candle shrine that melts into the street design

she waits - for someone

tonight she'll give herself away

she'll break apart all by herself

its so easy how we come undone

take me over when I'm gone

take me over make me strong

take me over when I'm gone

will they burn for me

she pulls me in and strips me down

she pulls me in and turns me out

she pulls me in and strips me down to the ground

on Vineland past the candle shrine that melts into the street design

she waits

tonight she'll give herself away

she'll break apart all by herself

its so easy how we come undone

take me over when I'm gone

take me over make me strong

take me over when I'm gone

will they burn for me

will they burn for me

Thank you! :help:

Usually a candle shrine is left to honor a dead person and the singer is asking will they burn for me...my guess..the guy is going to where his lover died/was killed and will possibly commit suicide (she is waiting for him)

Maybe I'm way off!!!!

Can this have anything to do with it?....For years one metaphor for a girl losing/giving up her virginity has been death/dieing...as in Billy Joel's, "Only The Good Die Young". Or, am I totally off-base here?

You'll have to forgive me. It's been so long since I've lit a candle for anyone. LOL!
