Lyrics

 

Love is where you find it

When you find no love at home

And there's nothin' cold as ashes

After the fire is gone

 

The bottle is almost empty

The clock just now struck ten

Darlin' I had to call you

To our favorite place again

 

We know it's wrong for us to meet

But the fire's gone out at home

And there's nothin' cold as ashes

After the fire is gone

 

Love is where you find it

When you find no love at home

And there's nothin' cold as ashes

After the fire is gone

 

Your lips are warm and tender

Your arms hold me just right

Sweet words of love you remember

That the one at home forgot

 

Each time we say is the last time

But we keep hangin' on

And there's nothin' cold as ashes

After the fire is gone

 

Love is where you find it

When you find no love at home

And there's nothin' cold as ashes

After the fire is gone
