"Just A Spark" as written by and Jason Molina....
will that look be your only reply
you lower your head in reply
here it is white and full like a pale ghost across the sky
and here it is crescent like a dagger from your heart into mine
here it is just a spark to shine(x2)

    General CommentIts a clear end of the story to the previous "the lioness" song, with the same guitar and all. It started as something promising, something great and strong, but in the end it turned out to be just a spark to shine, and nothing more. The whole album is about something that just didn't work out, but meant the world and perhaps still does to him.

    General CommentI've cried every time I've heard this song. The sad part is that Molina's saying (I think) that his love is "just a spark," since he's getting no reciprocation.
