ashes to ashes lyrics – ali lambert

i tried to warn you
sharp and jealous
screams of misplaced trust
dirt to dirt to dust

shattered into pieces
the memory of tonight
lifeless in my hands
as in your own

b*tterfly wing beating
ebbs away to nothing.
red, and raw and hurt
dust to dust to dirt

safe keeping
locked away in cold caresses,
stone fortresses
stolen kisses

knife wounds i couldn’t heal
twisted the blade
widened the gash
i tried to warn you.
