Downtown tonight, I saw an old friend, someone who
I use to take comfort from long before I met you
I caught a spark in his eyes of forgotten desire
With a word, or a touch, 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

But sometimes at night, I think of old lovers I've known
And 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

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
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
Oh, yeah...
