[Verse 1]
There was a fire burning in my heart,
Burning for years and for years,
Your love and kisses gave that flame a start, I put it out with my tears;
You don’t remember, I can’t forget,
That old affection lives with me yet,
I keep on longing, to my regret, I know I can’t forget.

[Chorus]
There’s a little spark of love still burning,
And yearning down in my heart for you,
There’s a longing there for your returning,
I want you! I do!
So come, come, to my heart again,
Come, come, set that love a-flame,
For there’s a little spark of love still burning, and yearning for you.

[Verse 2]
I left you laughing when I said goodbye,
Laughing but nobody knew
How much relief I found when I could cry,
I cried my heart out for you;
I’ve loved you more than you’ll even know,
Tho’ years have passed I’ve wanted you so,
Bring back the old love, let new love grow, come back and whisper so low.

[Chorus]
