You’re just beginning; I’ve lost my way

I always thought our love would last for ever and a day

Sometimes it happens, hearts go astray

I never wanted to become what I’ve become anyway



Fire to ashes, turn to dust

Toys in the attic have now turned to rust

I sift through the ashes; I throw out the pain

Strapped in elastic, wrapped up in cellophane



What was I thinking? What’d I expect?

Don’t take the time to makes sure all is fine; that’s what I get.

Love’s all corrections; I can’t seem to cope

Love is a monkey, I'm the junk and now you ain’t got the dope



Fire to ashes, turn to dust

Toys in the attic have all turned to rust

I sift through the ashes; I throw out the pain

Strapped in elastic, wrapped up in cellophane



I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe



I can’t breathe, it’s something I need

I don’t care how just as long as I'm able to

Breath, it’s something I need

Long as I'm bleeding I know that I'm breathing now

Something’s gotta give

I may never forget to keep on livin’ now

Breathe, and it’s something I need

I don’t care how just as long as I'm able to

Breath, all the lovin’ I need

Long as she’s lovin’ I know that she’s suckin’ now

Something’s gotta give

I may never forget to keep on livin’ now

Breathe, I'm breathin’ again

In deep, it’s good goin’ in

It’s so sweet to just breathe on my own



What I remember most of all

I’ve tried to trap somebody else within my selfish walls

But now they crumble, they no longer remain

It’s all the better, ‘cause I never want to go there again



Fire to ashes, turn to dust

Toys in the attic have all turned to rust

I sift through the ashes; I throw out the pain

Long gone elastic, oh, no more cellophane



Fire to ashes, turn to dust

Toys in the attic have all turned to rust

I sift through the ashes; I throw out the pain

Long gone elastic, oh, no more cellophane
