The forest had burned bright.
The devastation blacker than night.
An ashen wasteland left behind.
What origin will they find.
From the ashes life will be reborn.
Flowers soon the scorched earth adorn.
Likened to my broken heart.
Love allows the healing to start.
With me there's just one catch.
I'm in love with the one that lit the match.
