Havana was burning and there was nothing I could do
Put a record on the stereo and wrote a letter to you
I read it for you as well; stories I couldn't tell that came true

Carry a torch, carry a torch. It's allright now
Carry a torch, carry a torch. It's time to burn it down

Robert Mitchum was dying but I wouldn't take the blame
The blood looked better in black and white but it was color just the same
The heroine looked like you. What else could I do but turn away? (ch)

The national anthem was playing but I didn't bother to rise
So, I unplugged my phone and I closed my eyes
These days when I dream, nothing ever seems to make any sense (ch)
