My 13yr old daughter has a new CD by a group called FM Static. She popped the CD in my car and told me to listen to the song, Six Candles, because it reminds her of me and my triathlon efforts. I must say, she nailed it! So wise at such a young age.

If you get a chance, listen to it. I think the meaning comes across better in the song than just the lyrics, but it could just be me. I will share anyway.

You're amazing, but you're taking too much time
I’ve only got six candles left and I’m trying to keep this off my mind
It’s getting darker, but it’s the way they make feel
They try to fill my head with questions
They all doubt you, but I know you're real

If it takes time then I’ll be patient
Know that I will still believe
I’ll take your hand and hold it tightly
Because I know you’ll carry me

Take me high, take me in, take these last six candles
And when I’m tired, and wearing thin,
Give me the strength to carry on.
Here I am, see my hands, take these last six candles
We’re moving on, we’ll keep, keep, moving on

And I’m so thankful for every breath I take
There's not a moment that goes by
I waste wiping tears out of my crying face
Don’t look so sad, you’ve missed the point
I’m still so glad I knew you.
Against the odds I’ll take my chances
and burn this candle through you

If I could ever see the way you understand me
When no one else can see it I know you surround me
I’ll be the one who listens only when you tell me
Not walking, but running, not talking, yellin'

And they might never understand why I do what I do
But I can only speak my mind and what I feel is true
I’ll take a vow to be the only one who stands if it takes
All that I am, I will be standing!!!
