Intro: C/G

C/G                                            F
Downtown tonight, I saw an old friend, someone who 
G7                                            C/G
I used to take comfort from long before I met you 
C                    C7                F
I saw a spark in his eyes of forgotten desire 
       G7                                         C/G
With a word or a touch, I could've rekindled that fire 


C/G                                   F
But old flames can't hold a candle to you 
G                                      C/G
No one can light up the night like you do 
C                               C7           F
Flickering embers of love, I've known one or two
G                                     C/G
But old flames can't hold a candle to you 


C/G                                            F
Sometimes at night, I think of the lovers I've known 
G7                                           C/G
Remember 'em holding me helps me not feel so alone 
C                             C7                      F
Then I feel you beside me, and even their memories are gone 
     G7                                            C/G
Like stars in the night lost in the sweet light of dawn 


C/G                                   F
But old flames can't hold a candle to you 
G                                      C/G
No one can light up the night like you do 
C                               C7           F
Flickering embers of love, I've known one or two
G                                     C/G
But old flames can't hold a candle to you 
G                                 C/G
Old flames can't hold a candle to you
