Lyrics

Ashes Behind

Woke up this morning with a feeling like something had changed
Made a pot of coffee, poured a cup like I do everyday
Fired up my truck, headed out in the morning light
Weatherman on the radio said there’s not a cloud in sight

Driving along the doors to my past were closing
CHORUS
Ahead there wasn’t a car in sight
When I got to my job I just kept on driving by
I drove on, I was way gone
Burning my bridges leaving ashes behind

Doing something like that you might think that a girl’s gone insane
‘Cause you can leave it behind but you can’t run away from the pain
But leaving is better than burning up slow where you stand
Sometimes you just got to jump and hope you find a good place to land

Ask me where I’m going and I’ll tell you that I don’t know, I don’t know
Ask me where I’ve been, I’ve been looking for a place I left so long ago
CHORUS
Ahead there wasn’t a car in sight
When I got to my job I just kept on driving by
I drove on, I was way gone
Burning my bridges leaving ashes behind
Burning my bridges leaving ashes behind
