Lyrics
BURN OUT THE FLAME
by Betsy Walter & Frankie Moreno


Twilight, midnight
Middle of the afternoon
It don't matter where or when
I just keep thinkin'
How those nights looked on you

Candle glow, and I'm oh, so alone
Waitin' on the dawn
Can't get to sleep at night
Your memory's squeezin' me too tight
I'm so tired of holdin' on

The fire in your eyes keeps burnin'
I'm so uncertain of who's to blame
I've tried and I've tried, but these tears that I'm cryin'
Just won't seem to burn out the flame

Daybreak, and this heartache
Is still smokin' me
Can't seem to put out the spark
Girl, you branded my heart
The hurt's so thick I can't see

The fire in your eyes keeps burnin'
I'm so uncertain of who's to blame
I've tried and I've tried, but these tears that I'm cryin'
Just won't seem to burn out the flame

I've tried and I've tried, but these tears that I'm cryin'
Just won't seem to burn out the flame
