Song Description

It is a journey of one man's emotional scars and how he copes with them. It is a country song. I wrote the lyrics and Brent Edens wrote the melody. It is an emotional song.

Story Behind the Song

This is about coping with things in our past that hurt us. This is a story of a guy who went through a lot, the ashes are things that burnt us in the past, but we keep the faith and keep moving forward.

Broadjam Member Reviews

This is a retro blues/rock song. There are currently no major country artists on radio singing this style. It sounds like a live recording which makes it a good pitch for movies/tv background. The singers performance was good but the performance lacked emotion and believability.

    - My Three Kids Music

Very blues like, the subject matter lyrical aspect is good. The song sounds like it has potential, good Hank Williams feel in a contemporary way.

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.
