"Ashes and Embers" as written by and Elsa Greene Phaedra Greene....
Waiting for the evening star
Waiting for the hand to move
Sitting here beside myself
touching something blue
Isn't it a waste of time
pretending there's a reason to
play the part of someone who
isn't you

Isn't it strange how it happened so slowly
Isn't it strange how it happened so fast
Doesn't it seem like you're living in a movie
up until the moment
but it never lasts
Holding my breath
I can breathe underwater
Closing my eyes
I can see in the dark
Isn't it strange
when you walk away easy
Ashes and embers
Ashes and embers

Like a planetary ring
Like a magnet and metal pull
It's the gravity of everything
beautiful
It's the sound of a Sunday choir
Its the serpent in a sea of green
It's the burning of a city fire
It's the ripping of a seam

Isn't it strange how it happened so slowly
Isn't it strange how it happened so fast
Doesn't it seem like you're living in a movie
up until the moment
but it never lasts
Holding my breath
I can breathe underwater
Closing my eyes
I can see in the dark
Isn't it strange
when you walk away easy
Ashes and embers
Ashes and embers
