Ashes in My Hand
   ------Marianne Faithfull

It took a long time coming
That big over the shoulder statement
But when it came — it flowed easy as poison
Taken in extreme despair
Taken in extreme despair
Taken in extreme despair
Taken in extreme despair.

Remember to write often
In case you have something to tell me,
But please don't mention the unexpected guest
Staring into empty eyes
Staring into empty eyes
Staring into empty eyes
Staring into empty eyes.

A long lost confidence and pride
Come ringing back, come ringing back
sponsored links
To have the shadow back again
And happiness that feels like pain.

Then you left us
To see if you could find it
And when you came back — it flowed easy as poison
It flowed easy as poison
Taken in extreme despair
Taken in extreme despair
Taken in extreme despair
Taken in extreme despair.

A long lost confidence and pride
Come ringing back, come ringing back
To have the shadow back again
And happiness that feels like pain
And happiness that feels like pain
And happiness that feels like pain.

Happiness that feels like pain.
Happiness that feels like pain.
