Leave

Flame that will not die,
Say you are not mine;
Say that you burn for someone else –
Another heart that yearns for thine

Warmth that will not cease,
I pray you make me cold;
Come freeze the furnace underneath,
And slake the aching of my soul

Feeling that won’t pass,
I beg you pass away –
Let all your burning turn to ash,
And live no longer in my days.
