Clay Aiken – Ashes lyrics
Someone told me
What doesn't kill you only
Makes you stronger, sets you free
From all that held you down

With all my heart, I believed
The ember burning
Was a dream deep in me
When everything went up in flames
I still walked away

[Chorus:]
Turn around and see what love's done for me
You would not believe the way I used to be, so cold
Maybe love requires walking through the fire
To set me free, so I could rise up from the ashes

I was broken
A million pieces left to hold
I was frozen
My heart left out in the cold

Looking back I can see
How the voice of reason
Kept reminding me
I was never good enough somehow
Try and remind me now

[Chorus:]
Turn around and see what love's done for me
You would not believe the way I used to be, so cold
Maybe love requires walking through the fire
To set me free, so I could rise up from the ashes

Send it up in flames
Let it light the sky
Now that I know pain... I'm more alive
I'm more alive

[Chorus:]
Turn around and see what love's done for me
You would not believe the way I used to be, so cold
Maybe love requires walking through the fire
To set me free, so I could rise up from the ashes
