Jones, Tom - Carrying A Torch Lyrics

I'm carrying a torch for you
I'm carrying a torch
You know how much it costs
To keep carrying a torch

Flame of love it burns so bright
That is my desire
Keep on liftin' me, liftin' me up
Higher and higher

You're the keeper of the flame
Girl, you burn so bright
Baby, why don't we reconnect?
Move into the light

I've been going to and fro on this
And I'm still carrying a torch
You must know how much it's worth
But I'm carrying a torch

Baby, you're the keeper of the flame
And you burn so bright
Why, why, why, why, why, why
Why don't we reconnect
And move on further into the light?

I've been calling you on the phone
'Cause I'm carrying a torch
I can't do it all on my own
'Cause I'm carrying a torch

I'm carrying a torch for you, baby
I'm carrying a torch
You know how much it's worth
Because I'm carrying a torch

I'm carrying a torch for you, baby
I'm carrying a torch
You know how much it's worth
When I'm carrying a torch

I'm carrying a torch for you, baby
I'm carrying a torch
You know how much it's worth
When I'm carrying a torch

Jones, Tom Carrying A Torch Comments
  1. Rachel Lisette

    Two legends...doesn't get better than that! 👌🎧💗💗

  2. Suraya

    Just gorgeous Van and Tom. yea.

  3. Vidar Larsen

    Imagine having the great Van Morrison as one of your biggest fans?
    Yep, it is true with Tom Jones. Van is his fan. Look as happy Van seems to be. He looks even proud. Jones', voice is absolute perfect to this beautiful song, even covered by Bob Dylan once or twice in concert.

  4. Damien Hunt

    See that many comments are re Van's obvious good mood. The fact is Van Morrison is always happy to stand back and let others shine. I've seen him do this ( stand back ) many times in concert with his band.

  5. Inetjoker

    And some people say that there is no God.

  6. Alan Fox

    tom Jones needed decent singing lessons for years van the man to do it.

  7. Adam Adams

    who is the female backing vocalist? .. i liked her smile!

  8. Bettie Mccall

    Katie Kassoon is so-o beautiful! How can Tom and Van concentrate on anything else? lol. I love this song!!!

  9. tootz1950

    Obviously Tom makes everybody smile and feel good.

    Lynda McArdle

    It's because Tom is "universal"...

  10. Bettie Mccall

    Wow Katie Kassoon is beautiful! Looks like she was an inspiration to Tom and Van, the way they are smiling!!! lol

    That was excellent! Tom and Van Morrison did a great job! I would have loved to have heard Elvis do this song! That would have been awesome!

  31. jmary smyth

    Wow!! It's only as I got older that I realize how fantastic Tom Jones is. What a wonderful combination Tom and Van is!

    Dr Cat

    IKR. I'm so late to the party. I'm almost 70. My musical era was the late 60's' - early 70's - Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane, Aretha, Stevie Wonder, Linda Ronstadt, The Band, Van Morrison, etc. I was only vaguely aware of a singer named Tom Jones until I recently watched some videos of him letting loose on The Voice UK. How did I not know about his greatness?

  32. Jan Lindman

    Äntligen !

  33. robert french

    Pure joy new to me so many thanks loved it

  34. Nestor Alvarez

  35. Stephen Parsons

  36. Carol Spark

  37. Anthony Toth

    Both motivational and inspiring a sensational colabaration

  38. Anthony Toth

    Both motivational and inspiring a sensational colabaration

  39. Big the wig

    Vans own version way better Tom is the performer but Van has true soul and feel when he sings.

  40. Lynda McArdle

    I swear that Katie Kissoon is both blushing and swooning at/with TJ here !!

  41. nickrolfe69

    Great voice, great musicians, saw Van Morrison in Liverpool last year was brilliant. Am sure that's the drummer out of Wet Wet Wet

    Roger Whitehead

    I think that's Dave Early (, who died ) October 1996. If so, he performed in Van's VHS 'The Concert' from Beacon Theater.

  42. Joannes Innistovu

    beautiful song and sing

  43. Rich Terrana

    Who is the backing vocalist with the great smile and the great voice?


    Rich Terrana Katie Kisson

    Rich Terrana

    She's great!

    Rich Terrana

    And what a smile!

    Rich Terrana


    Stephen Morgan

    KATIE KISSOON Very Beautiful woman.

  44. Boingusboingus

    I thought Van Morrison had had his smile muscles removed in the late 1960's. I was clearly mistaken.

    A lesser Gracie

    ha should see him in duet w Tom, I'm Not Feeling it Anymore..he was almost was worth it just to see Van enjoy himself...he's a man who loves with music and he is having fun!

    Joseph Casano

    for sure--seeing the man have fun & laugh!!


    have a close look at his songs and lyrics
    "you might call my love 'Sophia'
    but I call my love 'pilosophy'
    would not be possible without very much smile muscles !!!!!!!!!!!

  45. John Benn

    WOW WOW WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    From a 72yo Aussie fan.

  46. Janice Roseingrave

    A beautiful version of this song

  47. MacRoibin

    good song, wrong fella singing !

  48. Paulo Borges

    he is smiling and tom too , and the girl...because carrying a torch is just a metaphor for erection! that 's it, freudian explanation

    Beau Geste

    Maybe :-)

  49. Jim Funk

  57. Valeria Cenerelli

    Fantastica! Grazie, tesoro!

  58. Frode Jarle Sørum

    The best male pop singer, he has done all kinds of songs and rythm's through out his long lasting career and is second to none. His friend Elvis was the greatest fan of all; it says all there is to be said. Now Tom Jones IS the nr. 1 of the greatest still alive.

    Antonio Mora

    Tom jones' voice when singing is unique. It is powerful and manly. Te BEST pop singer ever. His performances are second to none. When he sings a song he gets the best of It.

  59. Steven Perry

    The amazing ... Tom ... damn Jones. Respect.
