Ashes and Wine


I am really inspired by music and one of my favorite artists right now is "A Fine Frenzy." Alison Sudol is an amazing songwriter and her voice is that of an angel. I think her songs are so meaningful, sometimes sad and uplifting all at the same time. This latest piece of mine is named after one of her songs "Ashes and Wine."


Here are the lyrics to the song:

Don't know what to do anymore
I've lost the only love worth fighting for


I'll drown in my tears
Don't they see?

That which show you that which make you hurt like me
All the same
I don't want mudslinging games

It's such a shame
To let you walk away
Is there a chance?
A fragment of light at the end of the tunnel?
A reason to fight?

Is there a chance you may change your mind?
Or are we ashes and wine?

Don't know if our fate's already sealed
This day's spinning surface on a wheel
I'm ill with the thought of your kiss
Coffee laced intoxicating on her lips

Cut it out
I've got no claim on you now
Not allowed to wear your freedom down
Is there a chance?
A fragment of light at the end of the tunnel?
A reason to fight?

Is there a chance you may chance your mind?
Or are we ashes and wine?

I'll tear myself away
That is what you need
There is nothing left to say

But

Is there a chance?
A fragment of light at the end of the tunnel?
A reason to fight?
Is there a chance you may change your mind?
Or are we ashes and wine?
The day's still ashes and wine
Or are we ashes?
