Ashes Remain

Ashes Remain

Mountains stand in front of me
No matter which way I turn
Lost in the valley under sweltering skies
As the sun relentlessly burns
But first I’ve got to learn to crawl before I walk
I’ve got to learn to walk before I run

Paper hearts
Open flame

Time is not on my side
Time does not stand still
There’s no time to run and hide
There’s no time to kill
There’s no time…

The sands laid out before me
Do not lead to the sea
I need an oasis before I can face this
Never ending misery

Paper hearts
Open flame
Dancing sparks

Time is not on my side
Time does not stand still
There’s no time to run and hide
There’s no time to kill
There’s no time…

Time is not on my side
Time does not stand still
There’s no time to run and hide
There’s no time to kill
Time waits for no one
Time is running out
There’s no time like the present
There’s no time for doubt
There’s no time…

Paper hearts
Open flame
Dancing sparks
Ashes remain
