Amber, Smoke, and Ashes

Amber, Smoke, and Ashes

Through the Amber, Smoke, and Ashes burns a life I can’t erase
Yet despite my every effort trails a bitter aftertaste
Choking on the lies and absence, suffocating in the cold
Tells a tale of greed and anguish, one that’s better left untold

Seems I’ve under estimated you
Built to break and tear this heart in two
I’m closing both my eyes
Until its through

Staring emptiness and solitude directly in the eyes
Leaves one happier than looking past the anger and despise
With her finger on the trigger and my heart set in her sights
Bleeding drier than a desert on a cold December’s night

Seems I never believed it’d be true
All the hurtful things you chose to do
And I’m closing both my eyes
I’m closing both my eyes

Through the Amber, Smoke, and Ashes burns a life I can’t erase
Yet despite my every effort trails a bitter aftertaste
Choking on the lies and absence, suffocating in the cold
Tells a tale of greed and anguish, one that’s better left untold
Tells a tale of greed and anguish, one that’s better left untold
