Ashes By Now

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album Evangeline (1981).

(Rodney Crowell)

This morning is Monday where are you now
Teasin' my memory teaching me how
To lay low when I don't want to.

Well, love is elusive this I know now
It's making me crazy leaving me out
In the open when I don't want to.

The moments of pleasures never do last
Are gone like a suitcase full of your past
Long gone and in a hurry.

Baby, I can't go through this again
I don't need to go down more then I've already been
Just like a wild fire you're running all over town
As much as you burn me, baby I should be ashes by now.

The second street beggars alone in their life
Drunk on a sidewalk to hide from the night
Like I am They're just like I am.

Baby, I can't go through this again
I don't need to go down more then I've already been
Just like a wild fire you're running all over town
As much as you burn me, baby I should be ashes by now.

Just like a wild fire you're running all over town
As much as you burn me, baby I should be ashes by now.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
I should be ashes by now...
