Ashes One The Ground
by C. Carson Parks
Iíve tried to understand just what happened to the flame
And why, although we try, it is somehow not the same
It was great for a while
And the memíry makes me smile
But the warmth that was there I just canít reclaim (canít reclaim)

Iíve tried to understand just what made us drift apart,
And why, although we try, I still feel empty in my heart.
We had a ball, we had it all
But the thrill I canít recall,
And Maybe nowís the time for us to part.

But I know without a doubt
That we burned each other out
An attack with no retreat
We burned up with too much heat.

Like a fireworks display
We just let it blaze away
Now the passions that we found
Are just ashes on the ground.
And I know without a doubt
That we burned each other out
Like a fire in the wheat
We burned up with too much heat.
Just as though we both agreed
To fulfill each otherís need
Now the passions that we found
Are just ashes on the ground
Like a rocket in the night
We were burning in the light
And the love that we had found
Is only ashes on the ground.
