Ashes And Flames Chords

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

Drop D on acoustic

Verse 1
D4                    G
You and I meet on the shores of the broken
D4                                  Bm
You swallow the ocean, I swallow my pride
D4              G
Only to see the way that I need You
   D4                      Bm
Is more than I knew I ever could

Chorus 1
A7sus                         Em7
In between the ashes and the flames
     A7sus                                Em7
Is a cry an awkward silence could never contain
And the falling of my hammers and the writhing of my pain
   G                                                  D4       G
Is 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

[ Tab from: ]
Chorus 2
A7sus                         Em7
In between the ashes and the flames
          A7sus                                Em7
There's a song that burns brighter than radio waves
About the remnants of my idols and the shadow of my shame
About how they scatter like the rain and I can't stop crying
Cause 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.

   D4     G    Bm   A7sus  Em7    D

Little slide interlude between C1 and V2

The other slide parts correspond to the underlying the chords. Just play
and riff on it. If you really want it tabbed out, send me a pm. 

Let me know if you have any input or suggestions.
