Sady my part of the world as been on fire for the last couple of months, so here’s a song for the local people trying to rebuild their lives while the fires are still raging around them.
A big shout out to all the volunteers - often after helping protect a neighbours house, and then on return home, find their own has burnt down.
Thanks Airtone for the piano theme, pella is uploaded here

Ordinary People (Rise from the Ashes)

I welcome the morning sun
after a night that burned
so hard
so long
Packed up the family gone
while others they choose to fight alone
Ive never felt the moon burn bright
a scarlet sky shine through the night
Ashes fall all around
burning it all down to the ground

(Another day)

I ran into a friend of mine
the whites of his eyes all red like wine
He’s grateful for a slice of time
away from Hades death entwine
“What matters is we got out fine” he says
“but lost the house and lost our minds”
Posessions can be replaced,
those memories retraced,
when we reach that healing time ..

But hey, we’re ordinary people cheating fires
We pray,
like ordinary people hope to keep our lives
They say,
that we are heroes in disguise
just please walk away
got nothing more to say

But hey, we’re trying to fight with all our lives
That way,
like ordinary people have done all the time
Dont say,
that we are heroes in disguise
Please dont feel that way
I am sure you’d do the same

We’re ordinary people
Just ordinary people
We’re ordinary people

But hey, we’re ordinary people cheating fires
We pray,
like ordinary people hope to keep our lives
They say,
that we are heroes in disguise
just please walk away
got nothing more to say

But hey, we’re trying to fight with all our lives
That way,
like ordinary people have done all the time
Dont say,
that we are heroes in disguise
Please dont feel that way
I am sure you’d do the same

We’re ordinary people
Just ordinary people
We’re ordinary people
(repeat and fade)
