Our heroine causes a volcano to destroy the city, but will she find Mr Right?


I haven't felt this blistering heat since the day that I arrived
The mountain split, and fire and ash blew out of its side
And lava covered everything, and many people died
And everyone blamed me cos I had fire in my eyes

You were in a taller building sticking out the basalt plane
I couldn't see for the clouds of steam formed by the falling rain
"Far beneath my feet", I thought, "my doppelgänger lies"
The day I saw you by the window with fire in your eyes

Why would you think I wanted this? Skyscrapers made maisonettes
Maisonettes made graves
You'll always weather any storm, take a different tack and sail away

And after searching for a while we found a smouldering boat
And tucked behind a looking glass were the tatters of a note
"There's nothing here but smoke", it said, "that's why everything here dies"
"But love must count for something", said the fire in your eyes
You were piloting your ship, your attention on the skies
That must be why you never saw the fire in my eyes
