Dust and Ashes (令人失望的事物) - Josh Groban/Original Broadway Chorus of Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812

Written by:Dave Malloy

Is this how I die

 

Ridiculed and laughed at

 

Wearing clown shoes

 

Is this how I die

 

Furious and reckless

 

Sick with booze

 

How did I live

 

I taste every wasted minute

 

Every time I turned away

 

From the things that might have healed me

 

How long have I been sleeping

 

Is this how I die

 

Frightened like a child

 

Lazy and numb

 

Is this how I die

 

Pretending and preposterous

 

And dumb

 

How did I live

 

Was I kind enough and good enough

 

Did I love enough

 

Did I ever look up

And see the moon

 

And the stars

And the sky

 

Oh why have I been sleeping

 

They say we are asleep

 

Until we fall in love

 

We are children of dust and ashes

 

But when we fall in love we wake up

 

And we are a god

And angels weep

 

But if I die here tonight

 

I die in my sleep

 

All of my life I spent searching the words

Of poets and saints and prophets and kings

And now at the end all I know that I've learned

Is that all that I know is I don't know a thing

So easy to close off

Place the blame outside

Hiding in my room at night

So terrified

 

All the things I could have been

But I never had the nerve

Life and love

I don't deserve

So all right all right

 

I've had my time

 

Close my eyes

Let the death bells chime

 

Bury me in burgundy

I just don't care

Nothing's left

 

I looked everywhere

Is this how I die

 

Was there ever any other way my life could be

 

Is this how I die

 

Such a storm of feelings inside of me

 

But then why am I screaming

 

Why am I shaking

 

Oh god was there something that I missed

 

Did I squander my divinity

 

Was happiness within me the whole time

 

They say we are asleep

Until we fall in love

 

We are children of dust and ashes

 

But when we fall in love we wake up

 

And we are a god

And angels weep

 

But if I die here tonight

 

I die in my sleep

 

They say we are asleep

Until we fall in love

 

And I'm so ready

 

To wake up now

 

I want to wake up

 

Don't let me die while I'm like this

 

I want to wake up

 

God don't let me die while I'm like this

 

Please let me wake up now

God don't let me die while I'm like this

 

I'm ready

 

I'm ready

 

To wake up
