ashes by now lyrics – rodney crowell

this morning is monday
where are you now
teasing my memory
teaching me how to lay low
when i don’t want to

your love is elusive
this i know now
it’s making me crazy
leaving me out in the open
when i don’t want to

i don’t know why
you do that to me

the moments of pleasures
never do last
are gone like a suitcase
full of your past
long gone and in a hurry

(chorus)
baby, i can’t go through this again
i don’t need to go down
more then i’ve already been
just like a wild fire
you’re running all over town
as much as you burn me, baby
i should be ashes by now

the second street beggars
alone in they life
drunk on a sidewalk
to hide from the night like i am
they’re just like i am

(chorus)

just like a wild fire
you’re running all over town
as much as you burn me, baby
i should be ashes by now

aah, aah
should be ashes by now
aah, aah
