ASHES AND DUST ( I’M CALLING )

 

I’m muttering and pacing

I don’t know what to do

There’s no peace to be had

So I’m calling out to you

 

 

Now I’m here alone

And I can’t walk away

Answer when you can

I’ll be here all day

 

MIDDLE EIGHT
The days are growing longer

My colorfield is grey

I feel night closing in

Don’t you have a thing to say? 

 

 

CHORUS
I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling out to you

I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling out to you

 

INSTRUMENTAL CHORUS

 

Hardly an illusion

More than a memory

Nothing I can hear

Nothing I can see

 

They give me medication

And they counsel me

But nothing fills the void

Of what will never be

 

CHORUS
I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling out to you

I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling out to you

 

CHORUS
I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling out to you

I’m calling (ashes and dust)

I’m calling (ashes and dust)
