Sifting our way through ashes
Looking among the embers
Trying to find the answers
To the questions we’re asking
Faces lost within the smoke
Memories gone up in flames
Things can never be the same
Fading flames play closing notes

Now only ashes and embers remain
Rain has long since put out the flames
The last of us stare at glowing embers
The flames long since gone but still remembered

Hold in the last of the warmth
Breathe in our last breaths of smoke
Exhaling visions of ghosts
From the past of life before
It shouldn’t come as a surprise
We knew that this day would come
We pretended all along
That we’d never say goodbye

Now only ashes and embers remain
Rain has long since put out the flames
The last of us stare at glowing embers
The flames long since gone but still remembered

Too long we held back
Thinking we’d have tomorrow
But now we see that we’re wrong
When everything we built up is gone
