from the ashes lyrics – kris allen

“from the ashes”

i hate it when the light goes from your eyes
and there’s nothing i can say to make it better
if it’s true love that’s keeping us alive
could we find a way to fight this war together?

time falls like sand
watch it fallin’
right through our hands

[chorus:]
could we be most afraid of what will save us
breakdown to find out what we’re really made of
if we’re standing on the edge
hold on when it crashes
could we rise up from the ashes

it’s crazy after everything we’ve planned
how it feels like we are never gonna get there
standing on the bridge, watching it burn
no more yesterday tomorrow’s all that matters

time falls like sand
watch it fallin’
right through our hands, yeah

[chorus]

you just said you lost your way
like you’ve forgotten how to dream awake
but i know you (i know you)
but i know you

and i know you
don’t be scared, just close your eyes
we don’t ever have to say goodbye
well it’s alright, it’s alright

[chorus]
