Ashes Lyrics By M.I Abaga (In Memory Of ALUU 4)

We were down a sandy
beach,
All night talking to your
mouth's words.
Tell me where you would
like to be.
Tonight don't be afraid to
dream.
Lean on the fire for a
while.
Cause in the morning it'll
all just be ashes on the
ground


Verse 1
Instead it be them, let it
be me.
Since I will die inevitably,
Then let it be, that it be
said
When I am dead: some
other was free, some
other was fed
Some other, not me, was
able to see
That long as we live
inside a country where no
one is safe,
No one is safe.
We only evade, try to
escape
The imminent doom
But closer the date looms.
It comes for all.
If we must go, then at least,
When we fall…
(When we're all ashes…)
If I am slain, let them forever
remember the name
Some other should gain.
(When we're all ashes…)
Because of my pain. Because of
my tears because of my scars
Some other should gain.
(When we're all ashes…)
The reason I'm gone. Let it be
told, let it be known, and turned
into song
(When we're all ashes…)
If I die alone. Let it be more than
dying alone, the reason I'm gone.
The reason I'm gone.


Verse 2
Instead it be sleep.
Let it be hate, let it degrade.
Let it be deep.
Some other should weep
Some other should keep
The memory of
The way that I died
Maybe a change, some other can
try
At least we can lie. At least we
can hope
At least we can say
tomorrow is better, it wont be
today
Some other can pray
Some other can fight
The wrong done to me some
other can right.
Then maybe my death can save
some other life
For then I would gladly give
another life
(When we're all ashes…)
Let it be worth
Let it be so some other can live.
Let it be birth.
(When we're all ashes…)
As I am hurt
As I pass, let it be last, let it be
first
(When we're all ashes…)
Don't let them forget
The only regret is that we relent.
We all should repent..
(When we're all ashes…)
If I die alone,
Let it be more than dying alone.
The reason I'm gone
The reason I'm gone


Verse 3
Feels like I stood there watching,
the pain the brutal torture
And added my silence to the
violent screams
Of: Burn and torch em.
How do you earn misfortune?
Or does it come unbidden?
If life's a painted portrait,
Who puts dark colors in them?
If there's a God in heaven,
Surely he's weeping now.
As all the blood is shedding
As all His people drown.
God help us all.
Rest in peace Chidi
Rest in peace Lloyd
Rest in Peace Tekena
Rest in Peace Ugonna
Rest in peace to the Students
murdered in Adamawa state.
Rest in peace to those two young
girls.
