Old Flames

21 Jul

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…

      Hi Princess Sudiste , lovely to have you back and must admit I am jealous of your trip to the South of France , for this Aussie romantic writer the images of France and South France are so dreamy , Ana tells me that someday soon we will be touring Europe and France is definitely on the itinerary ,being an ex soldier I would love to visit Ypres and Fromelles
      Anyway enough of my waffle
      Sending you much love and a big hug

    …Old Flames Licking At The Wheels Of Destiny…

    For some, the dreams of yesteryear are sometimes in the now
    and life is all about loving, I guess as long as one loves there is
    clarity in the past, present and indeed the future…

    Have a wonderful rest of day and evening Ian and be well…

    Hi Ian! 🙂

    Just caught your comment!

    The diarrhoea continues – been to the loo three times over the past two hours and still feel uncomfortable!

    I had a fever two nights running and woke to sweat dampened pillows, so my bed is airing and I’m changing the pillow cases.

    I don’t know where it came from – I’m very fastidious when it comes to infection prevention – but BOY am I paying for it!!! 😦

    Have a great week my friend!!!

    God Bless!

        Hi Ian.

        It’s finally over! 🙂

        I had a good night’s sleep and everything was back to normal on waking, so I’m hoping all will be well.

        No reports of anyone else being ill, so it may have just been a bad frozen meal…

        God Bless!

            Over here it’s called Lager! LoL!!!

            I’ll keep up the liquids, but Sunday I have to go to church again – hopefully nobody else got this!!!

            It’s getting late – 2.21am – so I’m going to watch the news channel for a bit.

            The Bomb Blast in Oslo and the massacre of the kids on the island is getting round the clock coverage.

            Can’t call Muslims heroic when all they do is murder the most innocent and vulnerable…

      Yes you are right Sue , songs in the old era were written to sell the emotions of the words , music and lyrics from those days is a rare find today .

        Hi Ian, yes at least you could hear every word and they had meaning Ian, unlike the songs/noise of today… All you hear is the base beats and head-banging of many…And those with words are just a few sentences strung together to repeat… Its a rare thing to get a Good Pop song with words of meaning… Cheers back… and mines a Guiness!
