From the Ashes


From the Ashes

When everything falls apart
You will not find me in the corner crying
When everything has grown dark
I'll be the one in the room that is shining

I don't give up and I never intend to
It would be a mistake to assume I'm a quitter
Because every time my world burns down
I just build it back up even bigger

I'm not a super hero, I can get hurt
But I don't stop walking when there are knives in my back
Sometimes the wind blows my sails way off course
But I just pull out a compass and find my way back

So keep it coming, bring your pitchforks
Grab the torches, I'll give you the matches
Because I will rise like the Phoenix
Any and every time my world is burnt to ashes
