When I think Love is dead
never to Love again
it rises from the ashes

When I give up all hope
and resigned to be alone
Love rises from the ashes

When I close my eyes and fear
that the end is very near
Love rises from the ashes

When I let go of the rope
to go down with the boat
Love rises from the ashes

Laying in bed, staring in the dark
listening to the hounds of hell back
Love rises from the ashes

My heart dead and cold
no one around to hold
Love rises from the ashes

Hateful words ringing in my ears
echoing through the years
Love rises from the ashes

Empty ache in my heaving chest
I failed life’s test
Love rises from the ashes

Music no longer plays
haven’t seen her in days
Love rises from the ashes

Sheets cold without her here
no longer is she near
Love rises from the ashes

Only one plate on the table
disbelieving Love’s fable
it rises from the ashes

I let the fire burn
waiting as I yearn
as Love rises from the ashes
