There was a boy in a far away town,
and as he watched the world burn down,
he thought of all the girls he never loved
being washed away in the fiery flood.
For each girl, he shed one tear
until the ground was wet and the air was clear.
But the forlorn boy continued to weep
until his tears created a river so deep
that somewhere far across the world,
the water reached a lonely girl
and slowly, she began to swim.
She rode the waves back home to him.
And to this day, the people tell
the story of the world’s farewell,
and how one boy and one girl
and their love saved the world.
