Flame of Love

Shadows of my past still follow me around
Each time I return to this old town
It seems they will stay forever and ever
Till the moon’s up above and skies fall down

I’ve traveled far in this life that I’ve known
Been to the mountains, but never felt alone
For I always knew she’d be there waiting
Back in the cabin that we called home

But times grew hard, it still makes me sigh
And one snowy night life just passed her by
Deep in my heart she’ll forever live
Oh that flame of love, I know, will never die

I still remember when we’d sing till dawn
In each other’s arms deep into the song
For she was the one who gave me the tune
Lord, I’ll never sing now that she’s gone

So, I sit alone with the same empty glass
Drinking to the days, I thought would never pass
Holding back the tears, this I know is true
Oh that flame of love shall forever last

That is how it goes every night and day
Some things in this life, they forever stay
If your heart is true then you’ll know it too
Once you are in love, it goes all the way.
