Feed the Fire

In the first year of their loving
They believed that it was good
They played that game of loving
They didn’t need a school
Respectful of each other
He didn’t buy her any jewels
Till one day he discovered
They weren’t playing by the rulesThey forgot to feed the fire
Without fuel it won’t get higher
If you forget to feed the fire
You could get left out in the coldThere’s a bridge across the river
With a spike into the air
You can cross that river
And travel anywhere
But you can’t stop thinking of her
Sometimes it’s hard to bear
One day you may discover
That life just isn’t fair
Don’t forget to feed the fire

There’s a bridge across the river
With a spike into the air
You can cross that frozen river
And travel anywhere
But if the map that you’ve been using
Doesn’t please you anymore
You may find yourself choosing
Gibraltar, Singapore
Don’t forget to feed the fire…
