Smoke And Ashes Lyrics

I'd heard rumors and I'd heard talk About the trail you'd left of broken
hearts About the sea of tears too wide to cross But a little bad press
has never scared me off So I burned a path to figure out hoe to get me
some of what you got I've got a red hot heart If the talk is true yours
is the same and we should be together And let our passions fan love's
flame When I looked for you I almost passed by you You were so cool and
calm I thought my friends had lied But I thought so much reserve must
make you wild inside It was there and then that I knew I had to get me
some of what you got I've got a red hot heart if the talk is true yours
is the same And we should be together and let our passion fan love's
flame I thought I'd won your heart when I held your hand in mine I
thought it was true love the way we complemented each other But my right
is your wrong and when your right then I'm left with nothingYour light
and your heart have all been spent leaving only smoke and ashes Only
smoke and ashes baby I've got a red hot heart And your heart's as blue
as the blood in your veins I say there's fire down below You say it's
only smoke and ashes baby I'm crying all the time salty stinging tears
and mourning for the past carbon-dated years But knowing now for certain
that you were always right Because if a breeze could blow you out of my
life it's only smoke and ashes baby Only smoke and ashes baby I've got a
red hot heart And your heart's as blue as the blood in your veins I say
there's fire down below You say it's only smoke and ashes baby I was
blinded by devotion My unwavering love for you So blinded that I thought
all your lies were true But now I know for certain since you've gone
away It was just a smoldering fire I mistook for a blaze Only smoke and
ashes baby I've got a red hot heart And your heart's as blue as the
blood in your veins i say there's a fire down below You say it's only
smoke and ashes baby Only smoke and ashes baby Baby...

The object of the singers' affection can't really express the depth of emotional love the singer desires. Hence the title smoke and ashes, what is perceived as love's flames in reality is just the spent remains of an affair gone wrong.
