In a cloud of   silt  and   smoke     and  dust.
On the weight of the things I left  un  -  said.
Tonight     don't  be       afr -  aid     to dream.

    Fade    in - to     the   night.
Don't worry  about  it        now.
  Lean     on    the  fire for a while.

It's a comforting feeling with you      at     my       side.
Cause in the morning it'll all just be ashes on the ground.
