Dolly PartonOld Flames Can't Hold A Candle To You

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 But 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 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 But old flames can't hold a candle to you Old flames can't hold a candle to you Mmmm...
