Ashes By Now Lyrics – 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

Your love is elusive this I know now
It’s making me crazy leaving me out
In the open when I don’t want to
I don’t know why you do that to me

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
And as much as you burn me, baby
I should be ashes by now

Should be ashes by now
