    "King Of Ashes" Lyrics

    David Knopfler

    I'm the king of ashes
    Nothing from the flame survives
    Hands can turn the tides
    I have been consumed

    The road runs straight from Tarsus
    But I am mystified
    I would you were by my side
    These are mortal wounds
    These are mortal wounds
    Yeah yeah

    And they cannot hear my plea
    They will not play my tunes
    Melodies in rented rooms
    Price for seein' true

    But I can't court fashion
    Let me be who I am
    Far from savage lands
    I will be renewed
    I will be renewed
    Yeah yeah

    The king of ashes
    Whoever's by my side
    Across the great divide
    Marry, I'll love you

    The king of ashes
    My heart is open wide
    I pray you're satisfied
    And it's all that I can do
    It's all that I can do
    Yeah yeah yeah
