Rivers Rutherford – Smoke Rings In The Dark lyrics

Well I won't make you tell me what I've come to understand
You're a certain kind of woman and I'm a different kind of man
I've tried to make you love me you've tried to find a spark
Of the flame that burned and somehow turned to smoke rings in the dark

The loneliness within me takes a heavy toll
Cause it burns as slow as whiskey through an empty aching soul
And the night is like a dagger long and cold and sharp
As I sit here on the front steps blowing smoke rings in the dark
I know I must be going cause love's already gone
All I'm taking with me are the pieces of my heart
All I'll leave are smoke rings in the dark

The rain falls where it wants to the wind blows where it will
Everything on earth goes somewhere but I swear we're standing still
So I'm not gonna wake you I'll go easy on your heart
I'll just touch your face and drift away like smoke rings in the dark
I know I must be going...
