I’ve been sitting on the ground
Much to everyone’s surprise
People say I’m getting dirty
But I would rather kiss the soil
Than be crippled by disguise
Better down to earth than pretty
In the ash I see passion
In the dust I see trust
I will turn this ship around
And if everything crashes
I will burn if I must
I will turn this ship around
I’ve been swimming in your sky
Waiting for the tide to turn
To something beautiful and true
And you’ve been swallowing my life
From a distance you have earned
Every right to know I feel you.
In the ash I see passion
In the dust I see trust
I will turn this ship around
Do you think I’m old fashioned
‘Cause I miss you this much
I will turn this ship around
I’ve been buried in the sand
Waiting for the sun to beat
Down upon my back like lava
And I’ve been hoping for your hands
To caress my soul to sleep
Fill me up with your kabbalah
In the ash I see passion
In the dust I see trust
I will turn this ship around
And if everything crashes
I will burn if I must
I will turn this ship around
