A Keeper for Every Flame
- 8 Views
She says it's been so long, she can't remember when The mention of his name didn't make her feel again That everything is possible and every day a brand new start Yeah, love's something powerful when it finds a willing heart Sometimes it's a fire burning out of control Sometimes it's a candle burning long and low All these years she never let it go There's a keeper for every flame There is someone in his past that he hasn't gotten over yet Each day's like the last, he just misses what he can't forget It's just an empty space where something used to be Now he guards the gate, but he's lost the key So no one enters, but no one leaves There's a keeper for every flame Thought my heart had broken, but it was just a little bruised I thought love had spoken, I guess I was just confused Sometimes we were a fire burning out of control Sometimes we were nothing but a candle glow But it never died, baby, how I know There's a keeper for every flame
