Elvis Costello – The Only Flame In Town lyrics

I know a girl got my mind in a mess
I never heard her say goodnight and God bless
Shes not the only flame in town

And when were alone we never quarrel
I'm miles away now heres the moral
Shes not the only flame in town

Shes not the only flame in town
Shes got to stop thinking that I'm
Carrying this torch around

He struck a match and it lit up her face
We should have struck a match girl
To burn down the whole place
Now you're not the only flame in town

But you blew hot and cold
Turned my heart to a cinder
And with each passing day
Youd be less tender and more tinder
Now you're not the only flame in town

Shes not the only flame in town
Shes got to stop thinking that I'm
Carrying this torch around

Thought I saw your face in the fire
But it's so hard to remember
Even an inferno can cool down to an ember
Now you're not the only flame
Youre not the only flame
Youre not the only flame in town
