Candles
Candless
Album: Glee: The Music Presents The Warblers
Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Two
Released: March 15, 2011
By: Hey Monday
Sung by: Dalton Academy Warblers
Solos: Blaine and Kurt
Place: 2011 Midwest Regional Championship
Episode: Original Song

Candles by Hey Monday is featured in Original Song, the sixteenth episode of Season Two. It is sung by Blaine and Kurt as a duet during Regionals, with the rest of the Warblers singing backup.

Blaine chooses the song because it is very "emotional," and that he mostly wants to sing with Kurt just so that he can "spend more time with him" which leads to them kissing for the first time. Before the performance, Kurt admits to being nervous because it is the first time he has ever performed a solo in front of a competition audience. Despite expecting criticism from Blaine for being nervous, he assures Kurt that he finds it "adorable." Along with Raise Your Glass, this wins The Warblers second place at Regionals.

Lyrics

Kurt:
The power lines went out
And I am all alone
But I don't really care, at all
Not answering my phone

Blaine:
All the games you played
The promises you made
Couldn't finish what you started
Only darkness still remains

Blaine and Kurt:
Lost sight
Couldn't see
When it was you and me

Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
I'm 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

Kurt:
There's no need to explain
I am not the jaded kind
Playback's such a waste

Blaine and Kurt:
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
I'm beginning to see the light
Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
But I think I'll be alright

Kurt with Blaine:
One day,
You will wake up
With nothing but "you're sorrys"

Blaine:
And someday,
You will get back

Blaine with Kurt:
Everything you gave me

Blaine and Kurt:
Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
I'm beginning to see the light

Kurt (Blaine):
Blow the candles out (The candles out)
Looks like a solo (Solo tonight) tonight

Blaine and Kurt:
But I think I'll be alright
