ABOUT  HOW ASHES ARE MADE

Being bitten by love is one thing, feeling the sting is another. Releasing ‘How Ashes Are Made’ -the second single from his upcoming record -Dave McKendry dives into what for most of us is familiar territory: the lowest lows of love. One moment “burning out,” the next admitting, “even after the flames, I almost wanna burn again,” McKendry relives the madness of a toxic relationship. Bitter-sweet as love can be, the track is wrapped in sweet, pop production, a closer listen however will reveal the bite in the lyrics. An ode to a “beautiful vampire”, ‘How Ashes Are Made’ is a reminder of what people are capable of (and what people are capable of surviving).

Producer: Elija Kulmer

HOW ASHES ARE MADe LYRICS

Telling me to go but you want me to stay

Hands around my throat but you push me away

Only so much choking that one man can take

Burning out

This is how ashes are made

I was hiding under the sheets

From the mosquitoes

While you were sinking your teeth

Right into me oh

Beautiful vampire

Beautiful vampire

Put on quite a show in the cold light of day

Guess I didn’t notice you hiding your face

Only so much smoke any woman can make

Burning out

This is how ashes are made

I was hiding under the sheets

From

the mosquitoes

While you were sinking your teeth

Right into me oh

You’re the most

Beautiful vampire

Beautiful vampire

You know you’re poking at the fire

To dance among the coals

You’re such a pretty liar

Even after the flames

I almost wanna burn again

(You’re the most)

Beautiful vampire

Beautiful vampire

(This is how ashes are made)

Beautiful vampire

Beautiful vampire
