Ashes of Pain

One broken promise

One lie in the dark

spreading like wildfire

Burning my heart

One tender kiss

A deceiving eye

no sign at all

That love would die

 

Fire spreads through just like in the woods

causing destruction I never knew love could

Raging and raging and killing all things

When the fire dies, remain ashes of pain

 

Flames of love

Turn to fury and pain

After the fire

It’s never the same

Smoke stacks up

And then fades away

Just like the promises

of yesterday

 

Fire spreads through just like in the woods

causing destruction I never knew love could

Raging and raging and killing all things

When the fire dies, remain ashes of pain

 

(Jake Sharp, From the archives…1997)
