I recall your hand in mine like everything was new,
but no one said forever so if I run into you
then you can say, why there's my new old flame.
I've been replaced at your place now but I can't place the blame.
So as I mourn the couple that we never quite became
then you can say, why there's my new old flame.

Comrades in arms but they're not my arms anymore.
I can't hold that against you. No, I can't hold anything at all
when that's my name - your new old flame.

So I'll be civil if I see you roundabout.
I'll even offer comfort when you blow the next flame out
and you hear him say, why - that's no one, it's just my new old flame ...
that's my new old flame.
