I'm carrying a torch for you
I'm carrying a torch
You know how much it costs
To keep carrying a torch

Flame of love it burns so bright
That is my desire
Keep on liftin' me, liftin' me up
Higher and higher

You're the keeper of the flame
Girl, you burn so bright
Baby, why don't we reconnect?
Move into the light

I've been going to and fro on this
And I'm still carrying a torch
You must know how much it's worth
But I'm carrying a torch

Baby, you're the keeper of the flame
And you burn so bright
Why, why, why, why, why, why
Why don't we reconnect
And move on further into the light?

I've been calling you on the phone
'Cause I'm carrying a torch
I can't do it all on my own
'Cause I'm carrying a torch

I'm carrying a torch for you, baby
I'm carrying a torch
You know how much it's worth
Because I'm carrying a torch

I'm carrying a torch for you, baby
I'm carrying a torch
You know how much it's worth
When I'm carrying a torch

I'm carrying a torch for you, baby
I'm carrying a torch
You know how much it's worth
When I'm carrying a torch
