I remember being far from home, talking on the telephone
You told me it's over, you made up your mind
I'm part of the life that you're leaving behind

I'm left holding the torch
And the heat from the flame
Only leaves me in pain
Don't you know how much it hurts
You took all I had and you threw it away

I'm left holding the flame, yes I am
(Holding the flame)Once again
I'm left holding the flame, yes I am
(Holding the flame)Once again

No matter what you say it hurts, you didn't have to make it worse
It would have been better had you told me yourself
Instead you left it to somebody else

Maybe I can understand, you've been staying with another man
Day isn't long, nights can be lonely
I wasn't there and you needed to hold me

I'm left holding the torch
And the heat from the flame
Only leaves me in pain
Don't you know how much it hurts
You took all I had and you threw it away

I'm left holding the flame, yes I am
(Holding the flame)Once again
I'm left holding the flame, yes I am
(Holding the flame)Once again

I remember being far from home, talking on the telephone
You told me it's over, you made up your mind
I'm part of the life that you're leaving behind

I'm left holding the torch
And the heat from the flame
Only leaves me in pain
Don't you know how much it hurts
You took all I had and you threw it away

I'm left holding the flame, yes I am
(Holding the flame)Once again
I'm left holding the flame, here I am
(Holding the flame)Once again
I'm left holding the flame, yes I am
(Holding the flame)Once again
I'm left holding the flame, yes I am
(Holding the flame)Once again
I'm left holding the flame, yes I am
