WE'LL SWEEP OUT THE ASHES IN THE MORNING
Gram Parsons


We know it's wrong to let this fire burn between us

We've got to stop this wild desire in you and in me

So we'll let the flame burn once again until the thrill is gone

Then we'll sweep out the ashes in the morning


We're two people caught up in the flame that has to die out soon

I didn't mean to start this fire and neither did you

So tonight when you hold me tight we'll let the fire burn on

And we'll sweep out the ashes in the morning


-Instrumental-


Each time when we meet we both agree that it's for the last time

But out of your arms I'm out of my mind

So we'll taste the thrill of stolen love tonight until the dawning

And we'll sweep out the ashes in the morning


We're two people caught up in the flame that has to die out soon

I didn't mean to start this fire and neither did you

So tonight when you hold me tight we'll let the fire burn on

And we'll sweep out the ashes in the morning


Yes we'll taste the thrill of stolen love tonight until the dawning

And we'll sweep out the ashes

We'll sweep out the ashes

We'll sweep out the ashes in the morning
