[Verse 1]
C                   C                         F     F
Downtown tonight, I saw an old friend, someone who
G                      G                      C    C
I used to take comfort from long before I met you
C                       C                    F    F
I caught a spark in his eyes of forgotten desire
       G                  G                        C    C
With a word or a touch, I could've rekindled that fire


[Chorus 1]
    C5         C5                     F5   F5
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
G5         G5                          C5  C5
No one can light up the night like you do
C5                   C5                     F5   F5
Flickering embers of love, I've known one or two
    G5         G5                    (C)
But old flames can't hold a candle to you


[Post-Chorus 1]
C  C7  F  Fm
          Oh yeah
C  C7     F           Fm
      Ooh ooh-ooh-ooh


[Verse 2]
     C                   C                        F     F
Like sometime tonight, I think of old lovers I've known
        G                       G                      C              C
And I remember how holding them helped me not feel so alone (feel so alone)
       C                       C                       F     F
Then I feel you beside me, and even their memories are gone
     G                   G                          C     C
Like stars in the night, lost in the sweet light of dawn


[Chorus 2] 
    C5         C5                     F5   F5
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
G5         G5                          C5  C5
No one can light up the night like you do
C5                   C5                     F5   F5
Flickering embers of love, I've known one or two
    G5         G5                     C5
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
    G5         G5                    (C)   
But old flames can't hold a candle to you


[Outro]
C  C7  F  Fm
          Oh yeah
C  C7    F  Fm      (C)
      Ah-ah ah-ah-ah yeah
C  C7    F  Fm
      Ah-ah oh oh-oh-oh
C  C7  F  Fm
Ahhhhhhhhhhh
C  C7  F  Fm
          Can't hold a 
C         C7     F         Fm
Candle to you, a candle to you
C  C7     F   Fm
Oh please, oh please
C    C7      F  Fm
  Oh please, oh please
C
Can't hold a candle to you
