SamBea Cochrane – Cigarette Smoke lyrics

Verse 1:
Strike a conversation day one, the next few years spent loving underneath the sun,
I bring you around the world, you bring me down
You took my heart of steel my friend and molded it into something that worked again
But still you fell for all the burning ground

Pre Chorus:
So tell me yes or tell me no,
Tell me stop or tell me go,
I will be here waiting for you in the cold,
And just because I said I’d do anything doesn’t mean I want to go

But if I were cigarette smoke you’d love me,
If I were looking at your pictures you’d want me,
But I am just your ignorance and you are just a ghost,
So now we have to go, goodbye, let’s just raise one more toast

Verse 2:
I’ll be a thought in your head, the lines to a song or the book that you read
I would burn the city down to show you light
You made your way around the room, surprise, surprise, I left too soon
I was loving you with all my heart and might



Verse 3:
So that night I went back to our home, the one I’d let you stay at, now I live alone
I tried numbers, all I knew, my God above.
Every formula, equation, ever devised, I tried codes, machines, and realised
That science wouldn’t show me how to love
