Why Is a Burning Candle a Chemical Change?

Burning a candle is a chemical change because some of the candle is changed into gases and heat energy. But, if you melt a candle wax, the wax melts and then hardens as it cools into a dissimilar shape. If you change the form of something, it becomes a physical change and not a chemical change.
