A Keeper For Every Flame Lyrics

Artist: Mary Chapin Carpenter

She says it's been so long she can't remember when
The mention of his name didn't make her feel again
That everything is possible and every day a brand new start
Yeah love's something powerful when it finds a willing heart

Sometimes it's a fire burning out of control
Sometimes it's a candle burning long and low
All these years she never let it go
There's a keeper for every flame

There was someone in his past that he hasn't gotten over yet
Each day's like the last, he just misses what he can't forget
It's just an empty space where something used to be
Now he guards the gate but he's lost the key
So no one enters but no one leaves
There's a keeper for every flame

I thought my heart had broken but it was just a little bruised
I thought love had spoke, guess I was just confused
Sometimes we were a fire burning out of control
Sometimes we were nothing but a candle glow
But it never died baby and how I know
There's a keeper for every flame
