Bard's Poem Can't Post

I thought it was great they included the Lake-Town song in the new trailer I immediatly reckonised it, But I wasn't sure about the Lakes shining and burning line so I looked it up and sure enough it's in there but in a different context it's amazing how switching up the lines and just two words changed it from a song of hope and gladness to a prophecy of doom

The King beneath the mountains,
The King of carven stone,
The lord of silver fountains
Shall come into his own!

His crown shall be upholden,
His harp shall be restrung,
His halls shall echo golden
To songs of yore re-sung.

The woods shall wave on mountains
And grass beneath the sun;
His wealth shall flow in fountains
And the rivers golden run.

The streams shall run in gladness,
The lakes shall shine and burn,
All sorrow fail and sadness
At the Mountain-king's return!

any reason why they did this? they tend to do this a lot change the lines around for some reason like in blunt the knives
