She Lit the Torch
Dallas Wayne

V.1
HER CLOTHES ARE WHERE SHE LEFT THEM
IN THE CLOSET OF THE BEDROOM
WE USED TO SHARE BEFORE SHE MADE HER CHOICE TO LEAVE
HER JEWELRY'S ON THE DRESSING TABLE
I'D THROW IT OUT IF I WAS ABLE
BUT THAT'S ALL THAT'S LEFT, 'TIL SHE COMES BACK TO ME

CH.
SHE LIT THE TORCH THAT I'M STILL BURNIN'
EVERY NIGHT HER MEMORY FANS IT FROM A FLICKER TO A FLAME
SHE LIT THE TORCH THAT I'M STILL BURNIN'
'TIL WHISKEY TURNS THAT RAGIN' FIRE INTO ASHES AGAIN

V.2
ALL IT TAKES IS JUST ONE EMBER
FOR ME TO REMEMBER
AND THOSE AREN'T HARD TO FIND
'CAUSE THEY'RE SCATTERED EVERYWHERE
BUT I DON'T MIND AT ALL
WHEN NIGHTTIME STARTS TO FALL
'CAUSE IT'S ALMOST LIKE SHE'S STILL HERE

REPEAT CH.

V.3
NIGHT AFTER NIGHT I WATCH MY MEMORIES
ONE BY ONE GO UP THE CHIMNEY
AND THE SMOKE CAN BRING TEARS TO A GROWN MAN'S EYES
BUT I'M THE KEEPER OF THE FLAME
'TIL SHE COMES BACK TO STAY
IT'S ALL I'VE GOT, AND IT'S A WAY TO SURVIVE

REPEAT CH.
