You don’t have to wait

If the world was burning
should I dare to believe that you would want to be standing next to me?
That in the blaze, your hand would reach out to me
and your arms shelter me from the ashy rains.

We have waited for the right moment to create this love
This shelter for our souls,
But if the flames were to rise before we got close
Would you abandon your fears and logic and come to find me?
Move boulders to get to me?

I am sitting playing with matches,
I’ve burnt so many bridges,
My world has been burning for a while now.
I was wondering if you would call.
