A song of longing for love

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by unrequited love in a couple of different situations.

Lyrics

I Love You More Than Ashes

Got you on my mind though I haven't got you yet
I don't know if I ever will
My torch is in my hand, my house burnt to the ground,
The ashes lay quiet and still.
If you take back what you have given me
I'll lay buried in the past.
Long after you have forgotten me, the warmth of your love will last.
So know I love you
More than logic will allow
I love you more than ashes
Help me to rise right up right now.

Got you pinned against the railing and I'm leaning hard on you
And I will not let you go until you speak.
Call it faith or desparation, my body presses hard on you
For you are special, you are wise, you are unique.
If you take back what you have given me,
I will cry and weep and mourn.
If there is mercy in your character, you won't leave me stillborn.
So know I love you
More than logic will allow
I love you more than ashes
See me rising up right now.

So you leave me here alone, you have been gone a couple years
The memories are strong and will not die.
My desire for a lover washes far away in tears
Rising from the rivers to the sky.
If you are there on the horizon, I will come and look for you.
The man that carried you away from me
Did he take your conscience, too?
Still know I love you
More than logic will allow
I love you more than ashes
I wish that you were with me now.
I love you more than ashes
Come back, take me in your arms
Right now.
