Ashes Everywhere

This song is by Joseph Arthur and appears on the album Come to Where I'm From (2000).

I'll be silent in my solitude
Can't fight my smile
Or my gratitude
I'm afraid of what I might do
'Cause there's no me if there's no me and you

I wish that I could open up your eyes
To feel the sun that burns in your mind

I can't deal with what you have done
Reincarnate I wonder who I might become
Without potential I'm already gone
I could be as fresh as hard bubblegum

I don't have nothing now
I want me some
First some of you
Then some of everyone

Oh darling since you've been away from me
I know how the pins fill
In the bowling alley
They say love is something you feel but never see
When I see you
I finally disagree
I'm just trying to be all that I can be
Without destroying you now
Or joining the army

Your ashes must be blowing everywhere
'Cause I can seem to feel you
And you're nowhere near
And though you didn't say so
I can tell that you still care
We could have had it all
But then, nothing is fair

I still think about washing your hair
I wish I could wash away all of your despair
