I am Ash

Verse 1
Druid’s wands and witches broom
the men of ash carved in the gloom
Dancing nymphs The Meliae
what will happen when the ash trees die?

Chorus
Male and female share a bough it’s time for action the time is now
I am Ash
I am Ash
I am Ash

Verse 2
Warding off the evil eye
snakes don’t come where my leaves lie
Cradled in my loving bower
where I stand the ground is sour

Chorus
Armed we are from killing blows
the strength of shield the bend of bows
I am Ash
I am Ash
I am Ash

Verse 3
Widow maker as I fall
broken hearts and night owl call
Bring to me your ailing child
through the cleft become the wild

Chorus
My crown of gold decayed and gone no more an ash to gaze upon
I was Ash
I was Ash
I was Ash

Outro
Here the ringing of the bell
is it heaven earth or is it hell?
The future present and the past
what is lost if we don’t last?

I am Ash
I am Ash
I am Ash
