If I could write a song
Filled with praise unrivaled
Perhaps you’d play along
And my sorrow be consoled.

Was never power I held
Or wisdom that I possessed.
And not one fool excelled
At love; this I can attest.

But my meager heart’s ensnared
In the hope of me and you.
Words of love cannot be spared:
They’re too little, far too few.

Oh flame, my flame
You’ve burned me down
To ashes beneath you.
Oh flame, my flame
You’ve burned me down.
There’s nothing I can do.
