A Keeper For Every Flame Lyrics

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 everyday a brand new start
Yea love's somethin' powerful when it finds a willin' heart

Sometimes it's a fire burnin' out of control
Sometimes it's a candle burnin' long and low
All these years she never let it go
There's a keeper for every flame

There was 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

I 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 burnin' out of control
Sometimes we were nothin' but a candle glow
But it never died baby and how I know
There's a keeper for every flame
