Sung By Kurt & Blaine + Dalton Academy Warblers
Episode Original Songs

Candles is a song performed at Regionals on the episode Original Songs. It is sung by Kurt Hummel and Blaine Anderson as the leads, and The Warblers in the background.

This song was picked when Blaine saw Kurt singing Blackbird about Pavarotti. Blaine realized that Kurt was the person he had been searching for forever, and said that he needed an emotional song to prove it. In order to do this, he asked the Warbler Council at Dalton Academy if they could do Candles as a duet instead of a solo, which is what it was originally written as. They were going to have auditions, but Blaine asked if Kurt could sing the duet with him.

Blaine realized before this song that he indeed loved Kurt. They gaze at each other meaningfully throughout the entire performance, which shows that they do want each other. Before they went on stage, Blaine told Kurt that he thought it was "so cute" how Kurt stressed out before singing a solo in front of a competition audience.

[edit] Lyrics

The powerlines went out
And I am all alone
But I don't really care at all
Not answering my phone
All the games you played, the promises you made
Couldn't finish what you started only darkness still remains
Lost sight, couldn't see
When it was you and me
Blow the candles out, looks like a solo tonight
Im beginning to see the light
Blow the candles out, looks like a solo tonight
But I think I'll be alright

Been black and blue before
There's no need to explain
I am not the jaded kind playback's such a waste
You're invisible, invisible to me, my wish is coming true erase the memory of your face Lost sight
Couldn't see, when it was you and me!
Blow the candles out, looks like a solo tonight
Im beginning to see the light
Blow the candles out, looks like a solo tonight
But I think I'll be alright!

One day
You will wake up
With nothing but "your sorries"
And someday
You will get back
Everything you gave me!
Blow the candles out, looks like a solo tonight
Im beginning to see the light
Blow the candles out, looks like a solo tonight
But I think I'll be alright!
