"Ashes" as written by and Thomas Neil/kurzweg Alday....
Here I sit
Waiting for you with a cold cup of coffee
And a burnt cigarette
That has fallen like ashes
Slowly from me
I search myself alone
Here I sit
Waiting for you with a suitcase packed
And an eight by ten
That reminds me of ashes
It's grey and faded
I search myself alone

[Chorus]
Cause there's always somebody
Who's out there waiting for someone to take them away
If I search long enough I might find that someone
Waiting to take me away:::..yeah but not today

Here I sit
Waiting for you the sun has gone down
On a perfect day
Oh I've waited for hours
Please send someone
I search myself alone

[Chorus]
[Lead break]
[Chorus x2]

    General Commentgreat song and amazingly written about being left, pretty straight and clear message in the lyrics but still amazing nonetheless.
