Lately you say he's been callin'
Saying that he wants you back
I hope and pray you're not fallin'
For that old line when it's an act

(chorus)
It's just smoke from an old flame
And smoke disappears in the wind
It's just smoke from an old flame
He'll look in your eyes and tell you more lies
And, girl, then he'll burn you again

I love you but I'd never keep you
From leaving if you want to go
It hurts me but, girl, I'll release you
If that's what you want
But I hope you know

(repeat chorus)

He'll never change, his words are the same
You've heard them all before
He says he wants you
You know it's not true
So why go back for more
