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 word or a touch, I could have rekindled that fire

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

Sometimes at night, I think of old lovers I've known
I remember how holding them helped me not feel so alone
(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
Old flames can't hold a candle to you
Old flames can't hold a candle to you
Mmm
