"Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You" as written by and Hugh/sebert Moffatt....
Downtown tonight, I saw an old friend, someone who
I used to take comfort from long before I met you
And I caught a spark from her eyes of forgotten desire
With a word or a touch, lord, 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 - 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
I remember how holding them helped me not feeling 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
Old flames, can't hold a candle to you
Those old flames can't hold a candle to you
