Ash


Hold on to hope in spite of the loss

Cause I’d like to be remembered as the man I never was

And I’m filling in graves with those misspent old days

That I’m trying so hard to forget

And I can’t forget them yet

 

Keep my eyes but burn my flesh

Cause you know I won’t be happy till there’s nothing left

Cause I’m empty as a bottle

Cause you know I’m not one for being subtle

 

And I won’t be found where you last left me

Please write me down

Thoughts long bereft

See I would love to steal a page from your diary

But I can’t steal a thing

Not your heart

No not a thing

 

Keep my eyes but burn my flesh

Cause you know I won’t be happy till there’s nothing left

Cause I’m empty as a bottle

Cause you know I’m not one for being subtle

 

Shake the ash from your shoulders

All those churches you fared

Not a bridge left behind you

And darling you ain’t fit for a prayer

 

Oh darling

Carry me home
