I’d heard rumors and I’d heard talk
About the trail you’d left of broken hearts
About the sea of tears too wide to cross
But a little bad press has never scared me off
So I burned a path to figure out
How to get me some of what you got

I’ve got a red hot heart
If the talk is true your’s is the same
And we should be together
And let our passions fan love’s flame

When I looked for you I almost passed you by
You were so cool and calm I thought my friends had lied
But I thought so much reserve must make you wild inside
It was there and then that I knew
I had to get some of what you got

I’ve got a red hot heart
If the talk is true your’s is the same
And we should be together
And let our passions fan love’s flame

I thought I’d won your heart when I held your hand in mine
I thought it was true love the way we complemented each other
But my right is your wrong
And when you’re right then I’m left with nothing
Your light and your heat have all been spent
Leaving only smoke and ashes
Only smoke and ashes baby

I’ve got a red hot heart
Any your heart’s as blue as the blood in your veins
I say there’s fire down below
You say it’s only smoke and ashes baby

I’m crying all the time, salty stinging tears
And mourning for the past carbon-dated years
But knowing now for certain that you were always right
Because if a breeze could blow you out of my life
It’s only smoke and ashes baby
Only smoke and ashes baby

I’ve got a red hot heart
And your heart’s as blue as the blood in your veins
I say there’s fire down below
You say it’s only smoke and ashes baby

I was blinded by devotion
My unwavering love for you
So blinded that I thought all your lies were true
But now I know for certain since you’ve gone away
It was just a smoldering fire I mistook for a blaze
Only smoke and ashes baby

I’ve got a red hot heart
And your heart’s as blue as the blood in your veins
I say there’s fire down below
You say it’s only smoke and ashes baby

Prijevod pjesme

Dim i pepeo

Čula sam glasine i priče
O dugom tragu slomljenih srca koji si napravio
O moru suza preširokom da bi se pregazilo
No malo lošeg glasa nikad me nije odvratilo
Stoga sam ugazila stazu da shvatim
Kako da dođem do malo onog što ti imaš

Moje je srce užareno
A ako su istinite priče takvo je i tvoje
Pa bismo trebali biti zajedno
I pustiti našim strastima da raspire plamen ljubavi

Dok sam te tražila, umalo sam prošla kraj tebe
Bio si tako smiren i hladan, pomislih, moji prijatelji su lagali
Ali pomislih isto, od toliko suzdržanosti sigurno si divlji iznutra
U tom sam trenutku znala
Moram doći do malo onog što ti imaš

Moje je srce užareno
A ako su istinite priče takvo je i tvoje
Pa bismo trebali biti zajedno
I pustiti našim strastima da raspire plamen ljubavi

Mislila sam da sam te osvojila kad sam držala tvoju ruku u svojoj
Mislila sam da je to prava ljubav kako smo se nadopunjavali
Ali moje ispravno je tvoje krivo
A kad si ti u pravu ja ostajem praznih ruku
Tvoje svjetlo i tvoj plam potpuno su potrošeni
Ostali su samo dim i pepeo
Samo dim i pepeo dušo

Moje je srce užareno
A tvoje je tužno i plavo kao krv u tvojim venama
Dok ja kažem da dolje ima vatre
Ti kažeš da to je tek dim i pepeo dušo

Plačem cijelo vrijeme, slane, žareće suze
I žalim za prošlim, pradavnim godinama
Ali sad sam sigurna da si uvijek bio u pravu
Jer ako te lahor mogao odnijeti iz mog života
To i jest bio samo dim i pepeo dušo
Samo dim i pepeo dušo

Moje je srce užareno
A tvoje je tužno i plavo kao krv u tvojim venama
Dok ja kažem da dolje ima vatre
Ti kažeš da to je tek dim i pepeo dušo

Zaslijepila me moja privrženost
Moja nekolebljiva ljubav prema tebi
Toliko da sam mislila kako su sve tvoje laži istina
Ali sad sam sigurna otkad si otišao
Bila je to samo tinjajuća vatra koju sam pobrkala s plamenom
Samo dim i pepeo dušo

Moje je srce užareno
A tvoje je tužno i plavo kao krv u tvojim venama
Dok ja kažem da dolje ima vatre
Ti kažeš da to je tek dim i pepeo dušo
