Don't know what to do anymore
I've lost the only love worth fighting for
I'll drown in my tear storming sea
That would show you, that would 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 circus on a wheel
I'm I'll with the thought of your kiss
Coffee laced intoxicating on her lips

Shut 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 change your mind?
Or are we ashes and wine?

I'll tear myself away
If 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?
Reduced ashes and wine
Or are we ashes?

    i think this song isabout a girl who loved a guy..but that guy loved someone else...like...(8)im ill with the thought of your kiss..coffee laced, intoxicating on her lips(8)..it makes her sick to imagine the love of her life with someone else...
    maybe i just wish that was the meaning so i knew i wasnt alone.

    When I read the lyrics I thought about my pain and all bad things I`ve past because of a boy that doesn`t love me even I could give everything to see him happy. It hurts, but doesn`t matter! I believe this song is about a story like mine... a forbidden and impossible love between "ashes and wine".

    P.S.: I`m brazilian, so I`m not sure about my writing... forgive my mistakes!

    Ashes and wine mixed will give a bitter taste.. That s what we feel when we lose everything after a breakup..

    Relationships are allot of work, and when you just cant anymore, when you cant make them love you like they used to, you just have to let go and its such a shame to let love go. But you fought and fought and it wore both of you out. Youre still hanging on that little bit but you dont know if theres any going back.

    The meaning of this song is that she loves this guy and they both liked eachother but then someone got in the way and he fell in love with the wrong person and she is hoping that there is a chance she can get him back.
