    This is a really rockin' song about a lover scorned. He's torn up inside because he knows his girl is cheating on him. She stays out till all hours of the night without telling him where she's going or where she's been. But he knows. He can see it in her eyes--her preoccupation, her distractedness, her separateness from him, caused by the 'smoke' from the fire of her torrid relationship with another man. He's hurt, yes, but he's decided to move on, knowing that she'll end up cheating on her new lover just as she cheated on him, and he knows that, ultimately, she'll be the one lost and hurting, running from one man's bed to another, never finding true love herself. My favorite line: 'don't let the screen door hit you on your way out. '
