little match girl, don't light your match

little girl, little match girl

come, traveler, come

come, traveler, come said the girl with wicker basket

come, traveler, come said the girl with wicker basket eyes shining blue in the winter wind

come, traveler, come said the girl with wicker basket eyes shining blue in the winter wind and too-thin clothes frayed and dangling

winter is harsh, traveler,

winter is harsh, traveler, and blizzard is cold and unforgiving

winter is harsh, traveler, and blizzard is cold and unforgiving the girl smiles at you, asking

winter is harsh, traveler, and blizzard is cold and unforgiving the girl smiles at you, asking perhaps a match, to keep you warm?

it was too cold,

it was too cold, a match won't hold.

it was too cold, a match won't hold. the girl falters, but smiles again

it was too cold, a match won't hold. the girl falters, but smiles again perhaps an inn, until the morn?

and why would you refuse

and why would you refuse a warm bed and rest?

she leads you through alleys

she leads you through alleys through dark tunnels and deserted houses

she leads you through alleys through dark tunnels and deserted houses nearly there, traveler, says the girl with a mask of cheer,

she leads you through alleys through dark tunnels and deserted houses nearly there, traveler, says the girl with a mask of cheer, but hasn't she repeated it thrice before?

the cold hugs you until you buckle,

the cold hugs you until you buckle, and suddenly it was a mystery

the cold hugs you until you buckle, and suddenly it was a mystery how you live

the cold hugs you until you buckle, and suddenly it was a mystery how you live with the blizzard around you

the cold hugs you until you buckle, and suddenly it was a mystery how you live with the blizzard around you when the girl saw, she offered

the cold hugs you until you buckle, and suddenly it was a mystery how you live with the blizzard around you when the girl saw, she offered light my match, and pay me later

fireplace warmth danced in your eyelids,

fireplace warmth danced in your eyelids, feasts of goose mocks you shamelessly,

fireplace warmth danced in your eyelids, feasts of goose mocks you shamelessly, far but near, a magnificent christmas tree,

fireplace warmth danced in your eyelids, feasts of goose mocks you shamelessly, far but near, a magnificent christmas tree, and the girl's eyes, blue like ice and blazing like fire

and when the match burns off,

and when the match burns off, the traveler is no more,

and when the match burns off, the traveler is no more, and the match girl travels to sell some more
