Ashes – Lyrics

VERSE 1

I don’t even know

Where do we go

Why do we fall into pieces

I don’t want to say

These words to you

But now I’ve got to let go

Used to hold your hand

Each morning now it’s cold

The world round me’s falling

But call me in the dark

And I will always be there



PRE-CHORUS

Like the nightingale’s song

in the first hour of dawn

I’ll be waiting for you


CHORUS

Ashes, on windows

And roads of the past

Holding you softly

Right here in my heart

We’re Ashes on rooftops

Of places we’ve been

I don’t want nothing but you here

with me



VERSE 2

I will follow you

into the darkest night

I’ll be your dark angel

The signposts on the road to nowhere

We’ll both ignore

Time is on our side

our footsteps glide

upon the endless waters

But call me in the dark

And I will always be there



PRE-CHORUS

Like the nightingale’s song

in the first hour of dawn

I’ll be waiting for you


CHORUS

Ashes, on windows

And roads of the past

Holding you softly

Right here in my heart

We’re Ashes on rooftops

Of places we’ve been

I don’t want nothing but you here

with me


BRIDGE

I don’t want passion

no I don’t want truth

I wanna merge into

You



CHORUS

Ashes, on windows

and roads of the past

Holding you softly

Right here in my heart

We’re Ashes on rooftops

of places we’ve been

I don’t want nothing but you here

with me
