"King of Ashes" as written by and David Knopfler....
I'm The King of Ashes
Nothing from the flame survives
Hands cannot turn the tides
I have been consumed

The road runs straight from Tarsus
But I am mystified
I would you were by my side
For these are mortal wounds
These are mortal wounds

They cannot hear my plea
They will not play my tunes
Melodies in rented rooms
The price for seein' true

But I can't court fashion
Let me be who I am
Far from these savage lands
I will be renewed
I will be renewed

The King of Ashes
And whoever's by my side
Across the great divide
Marry, I'll love you

The King of Ashes
My heart is open wide
I pray you're satisfied
It's all that I can do
It's all that I can do
