ANDREW GOLD lyrics - Never Hold A Candle To Love

ANDREW GOLD
"Never Hold A Candle To Love"

When I was a young thing I swore a Mustang
Would be my ticket to the great unknown
Yeah, I could see me hanging out with royalty
La dulce vida down in Monaco

(But sittin' here) Parked in your driveway
(You're cuddled up) Right here beside me
(I gotta say) That this old world just ain't thrillin' enough
It could never hold a candle to love

Oh yeah

Way back in grade school I thought Suzy was so cool
We passed each other notes in study hall
She was my first kiss, my heart said this must be it
At 13 you think you know it all

(It's nothin' but) Infatuation
(It didn't last) Till graduation
(I gotta say) Suzy Parker and a school boy crush
Could never hold a candle to love

Love, true love knew all along
It would find us
It's such a sweet ride
Just close your eyes and hold on tight

Ooh!
Oh yeah!

(But sittin' here) With you tonight
(Just holdin' hands) Under the moonlight
(One kiss and I) I can't recall what I was thinkin' of
But it could never hold a candle to love

Yeah, it could never hold a candle to love
It could never hold a candle to love

Yeaheaheah
