When a spark ignites a flame
The rains can come and douse it
When the rains ignite a flame
Who can come and douse it?
When the fall strips bare the trees
The spring can come and fill them
When the spring strips bare the trees
Who can come and fill them?
When a foe inflicts a wound
A friend can come and soothe it
When the friend inflicts a wound
Who can come and soothe it?
When the world keeps you athirst
Spirits can come and quench it
When the spirits let you thirst
Who can come and quench it?
When the palace falls apart
Your dream can help rebuild it
But when your dream falls apart
Who can help rebuild it?
