Old Flames Can't Hold A Candle To You
Downtown tonight I saw an old friend someone who
I use to take comfort from long before I met you
And I caught a spark in her eyes of forgotten desire
And with a word or a touch I could have rekindled that fire

Old flames can't hold a candle to you
No one can light up my night like you do
Flickering embers of love, I've known one or two
But old flames can't hold a candle to you

Sometimes at night I think of old lovers I've known
And remember how holding them made me not feel so alone
Then I feel you beside me and even their memories are gone
And like stars in the night lost in the sweet light of dawn

Old flames can't hold a candle to you
No one can light up my night like you do
Flickering embers of love, I've known one or two
But old flames can't hold a candle to you

Flickering embers of love, I've known one or two
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
