From the Ashes
by Martina McBride



My right hand holds matches
My left hand holds my past
I hope the wind catches
And burns it down my past
With my failures and my shame
And wave good-bye to yesterday
As I dance among the flames

Don't try to save me now
Just stand back and wait till the smoke finally passes
And I will rise
From the ashes
From the ashes
From the ashes

For all that I'm losing much more will I gain
The hard part is choosing
To change what needs changed
My step will be much lighter
With these demons off my chest
I'm born a better spirit
And lay the old to rest

Don't try to save me now
Just stand back and wait till the smoke finally passes
And I will rise
From the ashes
From the ashes
From the ashes

I'll walk away stronger
I will be flyin'
Higher and truer
Than I've flown before
