Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. more »

I've been trying so hard to forget you
But this chore of forgetting I find
Has me burning both ends of the candle
And fighting a battle with time

What I'd give just to sleep for a moment
But it's a luxury that I can't afford
For I know that I just dream about you
And my tears would start falling once more

So I'm burning both ends of the candle
I just hope that it lasts through the night
For each moment the candle is burning
Brings closer the ending of life

So I'm burning both ends of the candle
I just hope that it lasts through the night
For each moment the candle is burning
It brings closer the ending of life
