   the damn matches!

(damp, soggy matches)

hurry, light them.

quick! before the fire

flame flickers, darkness descends....

(why do we both have to sit and suffer)

you look different in the dark...

(your chin protrudes a little

and i can't see my reflection

a beautiful orange flame burning

slow, passionate.

but nds a e nu

my ha r mb



and i'mm startting tto sshiv err...

(the light won't wait forever, you know)
