Like A Phoenix

Like A Phoenix

 Like A Phoenix

BY Chuck RitenouR

verse 1:

There were skeletons in your closet, I had a few of my own

while you kept yours hidden, you looked at mine and ran your fingers down the bones

I burned all your pictures, burned them all except this one

you have your back to the camera your hand on the door and in a flash you were gone

like a phoenix risin' from the ashes, like a phoenix risin' from the ashes

you're a phoenix risin' from the ashes, from the ashes of our love.

 

verse 2:

I stand alone on this street corner, alone in the pouring rain

now your spell is broken, free of the shame and I no longer feel the pain

your friend say you're happy with the new love you have found

To tell the truth, girl I'm happy too, happy I'm not the one you kick around

like a phoenix risin' from the ashes, like a phoenix risin' from the ashes

I'm a phoenix risin' from the ashes, from the ashes of our love.

 

Chorus:

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

the love we shared nearly buried us

You had the strength to give up and move on,

it took a bit more time for me to be that strong

like a phoenix risin' from the ashes, like a phoenix risin' from the ashes

like a phoenix risin' from the ashes, from the ashes of our love.

 

the end
