"Each Small Candle" is a song by Roger Waters. It was released on his album In the Flesh – Live in 2000.[1] Most of the lyrics were inspired by a news story from the Kosovo war of a Serbian soldier who saw a wounded Albanian woman, left his ranks and helped her.

It also includes a stanza translated from Danish poet Halfdan Rasmussen's work Ikke Bødlen[citation needed] (and is, thus, credited as "Waters/Rasmussen"[citation needed]), which has been wrongly attributed[citation needed] to an unknown torture victim from Argentina.

The song was included in the encore of all the concerts of the 2000 In the Flesh tour, and some of the concerts of the 2002 tour (alternating with "Flickering Flame").
