OUT OF THE GROUND

OUT OF THE GROUND
(lyrics by Mather Louth & Chopper Franklin)

Take my hand
Walk with me where willows weep
You’re my man
One day we’ll face eternal sleep

(But) Ash to ash
Dust to dust
That was never
Meant for us

When we have passed
Eternity bound
Follow me
Follow me
Out of the ground

Take your hand
Stitch my name inside your heart
You’re my man
Death cannot break us apart

Ash to ash
Dirt to dirt
Ain’t written in our
Stars at birth

Our fingers claw the ground in haste
Once we’re reborn, no time to waste
The days now pass at a different pace
The lives we knew now leave no trace

Hand in hand…

Ash to ash
Dust to dust
That was never
Meant for us

When we have passed
Eternity bound
Follow me
Follow me
Out of the ground
