I'm the keeper of the flame
My torch of love lights his name
Ask no pity, beg my shame
I'm the keeper of the flame

Played with fire and I was burn
Gave a heart but I was spurn
All these time I have yearned
Just to have my love return

Years have passed by
The spark still remains
True love can't die
It smoulders in flame
When the fire is burning off
And the angels call my name
Dying love will leave no doubt
I'm the keeper of the flame

Years have passed by
The spark still remains
True love can't die
It smoulders in flame
When the fire is burning out
And the angels call my love
Dying love will leave no doubt
I'm the keeper of the flame
