about

Every Candle Has A Name is a song about the Luminaria ceremony at the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life event. It was mostly written by my friend Jack Storey - it was his words and his ideas for the music that I had the privilege to work with and complete. He was kind enough to offer me co-writing status for my contribution, but I am just honored to be associated with the song and the event.

Jack asked me to finish this song and perform it for the Relay For Life Nationwide Summit in 2008. Since that event, I promised to record a version of the song to make available to anyone who would like it for their Relay For Life. I finally decided that what I recorded for the original demo I shared with Jack really captured something raw and good, and so I released that version here. Maybe someday I'll re-record the song with a much fuller arrangement, but for now, I give you the simple, heartfelt piano and vocal demo. I hope you enjoy it. - Tom

lyrics

(Lyrics by Jack Storey, Music by Jack Storey and Tom Willner)

We're like sailors in the night
Being guided by a light
Just a beacon on the shore
Giving hope and strength and more

Walking through this sea of lights
I sense unity and might
Oh the power of passion in this place
Every memory has a face

There's a name of the ones who still are here
There's a name of those gone we still hold dear
There's a name each one shining in the flames
and we know that Every Candle Has a Name

These are loved ones we have known
Some still here but some are gone
In this time in our own way
As the footsteps melt away

We see love in every flame
Like a never ending chain
and we know that Every Candle Has A Name

Of the ones who still are here
There's a name of those gone we still hold dear
There's a name each one shining in the flames
and we know that Every Candle Has a Name
and we know that Every Candle Has a Name
