ASHES

Lyrics and Music by Nick Patyk

Intro

C1:
And I rose from the ashes,
Outa the steam heat
Baby, rock, baby roll, but land on your feet
And I am far from perfect and I know I've been told
In siftin' through the ashes you can find a bit of gold...

V1:
A battle lost don't mean the war
Is far from yours
And if you fall to the ground baby,
Eat the dirt,
Remember how it tastes

PC1:
The past is wise and time is too
So let go of what ya think they did to you
It's the hour of your risin'
And it's right on time
And if you're startin' from the ashes
You can only get higher...

Oh yeah...
Get higher...

C2:
And I rose from the ashes,
Outa the steam heat
Baby, rock, baby roll, but land on your feet
And I am far from perfect and I know I've been told
In siftin' through the ashes you can find a bit of gold...

V2:
Tick tock smack baby, there it goes
Your tribute to the ocean will be paid in full
Cause for this life we've been given,
We always owe
Quite exactly what we got

PC2:
And all I'm sayin' is you better climb
Cause there's a demon on your tail
And his name is time
And he's gonna catch you one day
So you better make the most
This life don't waste...

C3:
And I rose from the ashes,
Outa the steam heat
Baby, rock, baby roll, but land on your feet
And I am far from perfect and I know I've been told
In siftin' through the ashes you can find a bit of gold...

When the flames climb high into the night
Take to the rigging don't give that fight
To the fire, cause it wants to consume
But let it know, let it know,
That it won't have you

Yeah, yeah, yeah...

V3:
What's yours is yours
Till your dyin' day
Baby, death might be a hunter
But you're no prey
Your life is yours until you declare
that it's reached its end

PC3:
Some maniac with six strings and a stack
Looked me in the eye and I looked right back
He said no matter how far down you are
From the ashes you can always...
Reach the stars

C4:
And I rose from the ashes,
Outa the steam heat
Baby, rock, baby roll, but land on your feet
And I am far from perfect and I know I've been told
In siftin' through the ashes you can find a bit of gold...

When the flames climb high into the night
Take to the rigging don't give that fight
To the fire, cause it wants to consume
But let it know, let it know,
That it won't have you

Yeah, yeah, yeah...

And I rose from the ashes, outa the steam heat...
