From the Ashes Lyrics

From The Ashes-Martina Mcbride

My right hand holds matches

My left holds my past

 

I hope the wind catches

And burns it down fast

I'm gonna step into the fire

With my failures and my shame

And wave goodbye to yesterday

As I dance among the flames

So don't try to save me now

Let the walls of my world all burn down

Just stand back and wait 'til the smoke finally passes

And I will rise

From the ashes

From the ashes

From the ashes

For all that I'm losing much more will I gain

The hard part is choosing

To change what needs changed

My step will be much lighter

With these demons off my chest

I'm born a better spirit

And lay the old to rest

So don't try to save me now

Let the walls of my world all burn down

Just stand back and wait 'til the smoke finally passes

And I will rise

From the ashes

From the ashes

From the ashes

And I'll walk away stronger

I will be flyin'

Higher and truer

Than I've flown before

My right hand holds matches

My left holds my past

I hope the wind catches

And burns it down fast
