The Fire I Can't Put Out lyrics

Im finding out how hot
An old flame can burn
Youre a feeling I havent forgot
The love I cant unlearn
Youve become a memory
I cant live without
Youll always be a fire I cant put out

I dont know how to handle
The dream you left behind
Its like a lighted candle
Burning up my mind
At least Im happy knowing
What love is all about
Youll always be a fire I cant put out

Embers to ashes
Thats how it should be
Youd think by know my heart would know
And it could set you free
The things Ive tried
The tears Ive cried
I guess theres no doubt
Youll always be a fire I cant put out

I dont know how to handle
The dream you left behind
Its like a lighted candle
Burning up my mind
At least Im happy knowing
What love is all about
Youll always be a fire I cant put out

What love is all about
Youll always be a fire I cant put out
