A KEEPER FOR EVERY FLAME (Mary Chapin Carpenter)
[Actually in A; capo 2.]
[Each chord is half of a measure.]
[Standard tuning.]

G  G  C  G    C  C  Em/G  D/A
G  G  C  G    C  C  D  G

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

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

G  G  C  G    C  C  Em  D
G  G  C  G    C  C  D  G

There is 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

Bm  Bm  C  C    Em  Em  C  C
G  G  C  G    C  C  D  G

Thought my heart had broken, but it was just a little bruised
I thought love had spoken, I 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, how I know
There's a keeper for every flame

G  G  C  G    C  C  Em  D    G  G  C  G    C  C  D  G
[instrumental; repeat and fade]
