Downtown tonight, I saw an old friend, someone who
I use to take comfort from long before I met you

I caught a spark from his eyes of forgotten desire
With a touch or a kiss, I could have rekindled that fire
But old flames can’t hold a candle to you
No one can light up the night like you do

Flickering embers of love
Ive 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
I remember how holding them helped me not feel so alone
Then I feel you beside me and even their memories are gone
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 the night like you do
Flickering embers of love
I’ve known one or two
But old flames can’t hold a candle to you
Old flames can’t hold a candle to you
