The Sanford - Townsend Band – Smoke From A Distant Fire lyrics

You left me here on your way to paradise
You pulled the rug right out from under my life
I know where you goin' to I knew when you came home last night
'Cause your eyes had a mist from the smoke of a distant fire

Lord, I was stunned shoulda' seen it come a long time ago.
When I realized the reality gave me a roll
If things are the same then explain why your kiss is so cold
And that mist in your eyes feels like rain on the fire in my soul

This lying, and cryin', it's upsettin' and gettin' ya no where
It don't stack up, so slack up and pack up
I just don't care
Don't let the screen door hit you, on your way out.
Don't you drown when your dream boat runs onto the ground

(Break)

I'd just like to know do you love him or just making time
By filling his glass with your fast flowing bitter-sweet lime.
He'll taste the aftertaste when you come home late some night.
With your eyes all a mist from the smoke of a distant fire.

Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire.
(Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire)
Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire.
(Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire)
Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire.
(Mist in your eyes from a distant fire)
Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a this...
A distant Fire

    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. '
