Stevie Nicks Trouble in Shangri-La (2001)

Candlebright

“Candlebright” is Track 2 on Trouble in Shangri-La.

About the Song

“I wrote ‘Candlebright’ before Lindsey and I left San Francisco. That was one of the songs we came here with to get our record deal for Buckingham Nicks. ‘Candlebright’ isn’t really written about Lindsey; it’s written about Lindsey and me, both of us. It was written in 1970, so I was only 22. I think I was always dreaming about now. I had never lived away from my parents when I wrote that song. I had no idea what was coming. But I think that song is a pretty amazing premonition, because it really is about how I would always travel and basically keep the light in the window so I could find my way back.”

Among Stevie Nicks music collectors, the demo of the “Candlebright” is also known as “Nomad.”

Lyrics

For no special reason
I am leaving you for awhile tonight
I’m flying far above you
Still I love you
You make things right

I’ve been with you before
I’ll be with you again
I’ll come back for more, yea
The story has a strange ending

Well, you know me I’m a nomad
I can’t feel bad
About the way I am
I’ve been rolling around
My whole life
You’re my candlebright in the window

I’ve been with you before
I’ll be with you again
I’ll come back for more, yea
The story has a strange ending
You guide me back again
And I come when you shine
You are not my friend, no
But I am something of a dreamer
I am something of a dreamer
I am something of a dreamer

Well, you know me I’m a nomad
I can’t feel bad
About the way I am
I’ve been rolling around
My whole life
You’re my candlebright in the window

You guide me back again
And I come when you shine
You are not my friend, no
But I am something of a dreamer
I am something of a dreamer
I am something of a dreamer

Still I love you
My candlebright
You are not my friend
But still I love you
You’re my candlebright
Still I love you
But you are not my friend
But still I love you
I can’t feel bad
