Dolly Parton - Old Flames Can't Hold A Candle To You lyrics

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...
