Ashes by Now

(Rodney Crowell)

This morning is Monday where are you now
Teasin' my memory teaching me how
To lay low when I don't want to.

Well, love is elusive this I know now
It's making me crazy leaving me out
In the open when I don't want to.

The moments of pleasures never do last
Are gone like a suitcase full of your past
Long gone and in a hurry.

Baby, I can't go through this again
I don't need to go down more then I've already been
Just like a wild fire you're running all over town
As much as you burn me, baby I should be ashes by now.

The second street beggars alone in their life
Drunk on a sidewalk to hide from the night
Like I am They're just like I am.

Baby, I can't go through this again
I don't need to go down more then I've already been
Just like a wild fire you're running all over town
As much as you burn me, baby I should be ashes by now.

Just like a wild fire you're running all over town
As much as you burn me, baby I should be ashes by now.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
I should be ashes by now...
