Keeper Of The Flame Lyrics

by Terri Clark

We pass in the hallway
I stop to kiss you on the cheek
But you're in a hurry
You've got a deadline you must meet

You're working so much these days
You don't have time to spend with me
But I keep hoping we might get back
To the way love used to be

I am the keeper of the flame
You only helped me build the fire
And it's getting hotter everyday
To make our love burn with desire

'Cause if I left it up to you
Only ashes would remain
When it needs shelter from the rain
I am the keeper of the flame

We live here together
But I feel we're worlds apart
When I tell you, "I love you"
You never listen with your heart

I may look like I'm doing fine
But I'm dying deep inside
'Cause I've done all that I can do
To try and keep this love alive

I am the keeper of the flame
You only helped me build the fire
And it's getting harder everyday
To make our love burn with desire

'Cause if I left it up to you
Only ashes would remain
When it needs shelter from the rain
I am the keeper of the flame

Whoa, when it needs shelter from the rain
I am the keeper of the flame
