Song Description

It's a country story type song.

Story Behind the Song

This is about things that hurt us in the past but it makes us stronger. This is a man's journey from a child to fighting in the war.Ashes are scars from the past that we deal with and just keep going.

Broadjam Member Reviews

I like the storytelling to this song. Nice use of a familiar lyric and then building on it. Would like to know how it all ends up!

    - Heather Edwards

Musically, this seems a little weak to me. Can't really tell of there is an actual guitar there or it is all synth. Recording is weak also. The lyrics are noteworthy however and song has potential with a little more tweeking.

Lyrics

Ashes
(Amy Abernathy 2014)


I was in fifth grade,
Said what's your name?
She said my name is Emily.
Asked her to be my girlfriend,
She said she had a boyfriend.
And his name was bobby Lee.
Ashes, ashes, all fall down
We all have ashes floating around.


At seventeen I fell hard in love,
She was pretty as a white dove.
She broke my heart my senior year.
Said she was moving far from here.
Off to school for a much better way.
There's nothing left for her to say.
Ashes, ashes all fall down,
We all have ashes floating around.

(Chorus)
The things we go through can make us strong.
We just learn as we go along.
Ashes are things in our past,
They burnt us once but fade away fast.
Some ashes will linger on,
Hold your chin up and just hold on.
Ashes, ashes all fall down,
WE all have ashes floating around.


After school I was working hard,
Got a letter from the National Guard.
Went to war, down in the trenches,
Deep in my soul my emotions descended.
Ashes, ashes all fall down,
We all go through pain and get knocked around.
Ashes, ashes all fall down.
We all have ashes floating around.


I came home from war trying to reconnect,
Dreams in my head cause me to disconnect.
I fought for the Good old US of A,
But the battles in my mind still start to rage.
My mind tries to erase all that I've seen.
How can I wipe the slate clean?
Ashes, ashes all fall down,
We all have hurts floating around.

(Chorus)

The things we go through can make us strong.
We just learn as we go along.
Ashes are things in our past,
They burnt us once but fade away fast.
Some ashes will linger on,
Hold your chin up and just hold on.
Ashes, ashes all fall down,
We all have ashes floating around.

(Outro)
Ashes, ashes all fall down,
We all have our ashes floating around.
