I tried hundred proof whiskey to just fuel the flame
That just keeps on burning so true
There's no other light that shines quite as bright
As this torch that I carry for you

I've tried to forget you but it just can't be done
My old heart just won't love someone new
No I've never found a way to lay down
This torch that I carry for you

My heart will never leave your shadow, dear
I know I can't have you but just let me be there
'Cause I'll make it alright if you'll stand in the light
Of this torch that I carry for you

Yes I'll make it alright if you'll stand in the light
Of this torch that I carry for you
Oh, this torch that I carry for you
(carry for you)
