Old Flames

Flames Pictures, Images and Photos

Come let us go out and play
we had so much to say
before you became you
and I became me
where has all the laughter gone
the anticipation of the flames
did they just burn out and die
those steamy hot love games
we played before
what got in the way
when you look at me
can it ever be
the two
we were once then
whatever happened
to the looks
you gave me
and I gave you
sparks flew across the room
such was in the touch
that meant so much
Come let us go out and play
let nothing get in the way
rekindle the flames
you are you
and I am me
the same lovers as before
