Lyrics

Ash Street

Written By: Dan Weaver

Just you and I
Walking slow on Ash Street
Fie what they think of us,
Fie what they say of us
Fie everything.
Hold my hand, take my love, kiss my lips we're almost home.
Hold me close forevermore.
Say you love me now ... you're almost home.
I love the way you look tonight.
And I want to feel you here
by my side
forevermore.
I can't believe it's ten PM already.
I can't believe the sun's asleep,
14 hours, gone so fast.
We expose secrets as we open up our souls
so fie what they think of us and
Fie what they say of us
Fie everything.
I love the way you look
tonight
and I want to feel you here
by my side
Forevermore.
Just you and I
Holding close on
Ash Street.
