The Only Flame In Town

Elvis Costello

 EF#m
 I know a girl, got my mind in a mess

 G#mAG#mF#m
 I never heard her say goodnight and God bless

 BE
She's not the only flame in town 

 EF#mG#m
*verse 2 - same except were noted*
And when we're alone we never quarrel
I'm miles away, now here's the moral
 EE7
She's not the only flame in town      

*chorus*

 ABG#mC#m
 She's not the only flame in town  

 D
 She's got to stop thinking that I'm

 AE
 Carrying this torch around 

*verse 3 - same as verse 1*
He struck a match and lit up her face
We should have struck a match girl
To burn down the whole place
Now you're not the only flame in town

*verse 4 - same as verse 2*
But you blew hot and cold
Turnmy heart to a cinder
And with each passing day
You'd be less tender and more tinder
Now you're not the only flame in the town

*chorus - same*
She's not the only flame in town
She's got to stop thinking that I'm
Carrying this torch around

*verse 5 -same as verse 1 except where noted*
Thought I saw your face in the fire
But its so hard to remember
Even an inferno can cool down to an ember
Now you're not the only flame

 EF#mG#mEF#mG#m
              You're not the only flame        

 G#mEF#mG#m
 You're not the only flame in town
