I just called to thank you for turning me around
And showing me how love feels when it's right
You erased a memory my teardrops couldn't drown
When you put out an old flame last night

I never thought I'd find myself leaving her behind
But thanks to you, I finally see the light
'Cause I woke up this morning without her on my mind
You put out an old flame last night

It never even crossed my mind, finding someone else
'Cause I've been loving her 'most all my life
But you poured out more love to me than I have ever felt
When you put out an old flame last night

I never thought I'd find myself leaving her behind
But thanks to you, I finally see the light
'Cause I woke up this morning without her on my mind
You put out an old flame last night
Yes, you put out an old flame last night
