John Mark McMillan 
Ashes and Flames 
From "The Song Inside the Sounds of Breaking Down"


Drop D on acoustic

Verse 1
D4 GYou and I meet on the shores of the broken
D4 BmYou swallow the ocean, I swallow my pride
D4 GOnly to see the way that I need You
D4 BmIs more than I knew I ever could
Chorus 1
A7sus Em7In between the ashes and the flames
A7sus Em7Is a cry an awkward silence could never contain
A7sus And the falling of my hammers and the writhing of my pain
G D4 GIs just not as real as the way that You're calling my name
Verse 2 I can't help thinking that the way that You want me And the ghost that haunts me are one and the same Cause you stand at my window at night while I'm sleeping There's not a promise I'm keeping that could ever repay You Chorus 2
A7sus Em7In between the ashes and the flames
A7sus Em7There's a song that burns brighter than radio waves
A7sus About the remnants of my idols and the shadow of my shame
GAbout how they scatter like the rain and I can't stop crying
DCause You won't stop calling my name
Bm D4 Em7 Calling my name, calling my name, up from the ashes
Outro (end on D) D - Bm - D4 - Em7 As I said above, he's playing this in drop D. Here's the way I play the chords, but play them however sounds best for you.
