Smoke and Ashes

歌詞

I'd heard rumors and I'd heard talk

 

About the trail you'd left of broken hearts

 

About the sea of tears too wide to cross

 

But a little bad press has never scared me off

 

So I burned a path to figure out

 

How to get me some of what you got

 

I've got a red hot heart

 

If the talk is true your's is the same

 

And we should be together

 

And let our passions fan love's flame

 

When I looked for you I almost passed you by

 

You were so cool and calm

I thought my friends had lied

 

But I thought so much reserve must make you wild inside

 

It was there and then that I knew

 

I had to get some of what you got

 

I've got a red hot heart

 

If the talk is true your's is the same

 

And we should be together

 

And let our passions fan love's flame

 

I thought I'd won your heart when I held you hand in mine

I thought it was true love the way we complemented each other

 

But my right is your wrong

And when you're right then I'm left with nothing

 

Your light and your heat have all been spent

Leaving only smoke and ashes

 

Only smoke and ashes baby

 

I've got a red hot heart

 

And your heart's as blue as the blood in your veins

I say there's fire down below

 

You say it's only smoke and ashes baby

 

I'm crying all the time

 

Salty stinging tears

 

And mourning for the past carbon-dated years

 

But knowing now for certain that you were always right

 

Because if a breeze could blow you out of my life

It's only smoke and ashes baby

 

Only smoke and ashes baby

 

I've got a red hot heart

 

And your heart's as blue as the blood in your veins

I say there's fire down below

 

You say it's only smoke and ashes baby

 

I was blinded by devotion

 

My unwavering love for you

 

So blinded that I thought all your lies were true

 

But now I know for certain since you've gone away

 

It was just a smoldering fire I mistook for a blaze

Only smoke and ashes baby

 

I've got a red hot heart

 

And your heart's as blue as the blood in your veins

 

I say there's fire down below

 

You say it's only smoke and ashes baby

 

Only smoke and ashes baby

 

Baby
