Clay Aiken – “Rise Up From The Ashes”

Turn around
And see what love’s done for me
You would not believe
The way I used to be
So cold
Maybe love requires
Walkin’ through the fire
To set me free
So I can rise up from the ashes


On May 6, 2008, Clay Aiken released an album of songs titled, On My Way Here.   The album is filled with beautiful songs and each one seems to have a special story.

The song, Ashes, is a fan favorite.  It has a great beat and makes you feel good.

  1. Yes, I do love this song. Clay performed it perfectly. I did like the blond hair that he sported at that time.

  2. Always loved that song. I wish it had been a lead single. Miss him singing, especially songs like that.
