Standing In Your Ashes (F/ Amateur Engines)

from by Jason Guy Smiley



This is a live performance from Will's Pub in Orlando, FL. Amateur Engines joined me for the final song of the night on December 29th, 2015.


Said you were too burned up
To love and you smiled
Cause you knew that I'd be
Standing in your ashes for awhile
And I got some bad news
Everything I said is true
I know you're off it now, but girl
I'll never be through

And now you're running
It's plain to see
I never thought that when you ran
It would be away from me

And I'm not much different
Than drugs or booze
I'm something you don't really need
But you sometimes abuse
You loved me in the winter
But now it's spring
And everyday I fight this feeling
Of not meaning anything

And now you're running
I can relate to that
I never thought the day would come that you would
Run and not look back

If the price of admission
For keeping you around
Is to quiet down my heart
I'll learn not to make a sound
Just never listen to me sing
Never listen to my songs
The next time I say I love you
The whole room will sing along

And we'll sing..
