Lyrics

Ashes In The Rain

Verse 1:
My granddad told me stories 'bout the great Chicago fire.
Said the flames had roared like voices in the doomsday devils choir,
filling up the night with a leaping wall of red,
smoke choking out the sun, sky pitch-black overhead.

Prechorus 1:
Then he'd shake his head in wonder
unable to explain
how a city that seemed so strong
could dwindle down to ASHES IN THE RAIN.

Chorus 1:
ALL THAT FIRE LEFT
WERE ASHES IN THE RAIN
TERRIBLE DESTRUCTION, A LEGACY OF PAIN,
NINETY THOUSAND PEOPLE TRYING TO BUILD THEIR LIVES AGAIN
OUT OF ASHES
ASHES IN THE RAIN

Verse 2:
When our desire first kindled we were spellbound in the heat.
All the dreams that burned inside us tangled in those fevered sheets,
binding us together in passion's boundless maze
bone lonely hearts igniting in an all consuming blaze.

Prechorus 2:
Now I shake my head in wonder
unable to explain
how something that seemed so strong
could dwindle down to ASHES IN THE RAIN.

Chorus 2:
ALL THAT FIRE LEFT
WERE ASHES IN THE RAIN
TERRIBLE DESTRUCTION, A LEGACY OF PAIN,
TWO LOST AND WOUNDED PEOPLE TRYING TO BUILD THEIR LIVES AGAIN
OUT OF ASHES
ASHES IN THE RAIN
