lyrics

Once there was a forest
Which shown with emerald leaves
And in this grove a glass house
Sparkled amidst the trees

Once there was a forest
Set to smoldering flame
When you struck a tiny match
For the glory of the game

For fire moved you more than light
And slowly this lovely world turns

And the forest blazed like molten glass
As the fire scored its path
And the forest blazed like molten glass
And my aching heart stood worn and still
And yearned for the flames to pass

The grove and glass once glistened
Evading wealth and fame
Emerald leaves and branches
And gleaming windowpanes

Ancient life has come and gone
And quickly this deep beauty burns

And the forest blazed like molten glass
As the fire scored its path
And the forest blazed like molten glass
And my aching heart stood worn and still
And yearned for the flames to pass

And what if the match had lit a candle
Which gave off a soft light
That is a world that I could handle
And we would have been alright

And the forest blazed like molten glass
As the fire scored its path
And the forest blazed like molten glass
And my aching heart stood worn and still
And yearned for the flames to pass
