Ever heard of the simile like a moth to a flame?

The Burn
(Original Title)

There is a pretty moth and a beautiful flame,

I watch them dance around one another, playing nothing but a loser's game.

Warm lies and freezing truth, I'm the awkward one who dares to come and save you,

Fire burns but the persistant moth doesn't have a clue.

Do you know about all of the nights I sat alone without you?

Stupid moth and foolish flame, I could just blow you out,

But how can I do such a thing when it is the moth I cannot live without?

All I can do is watch, do you not hear my plea?

What's the point in living when you're not here beside me?

Oh, foolish moth, that flame will definitely burn,

But I guess that is what you deserve, may this be a lesson for you to learn...
