Lyrics
This Cigarette (C. Smith, G. Giusti, R. Bassett)

Verse 1:

You're no good for me
But I'm so used to you
In a moment of weakness
You're the first thing I turn to
You've been my remedy
You've been the reason it's harder to breathe
But out here tonight
I need to try to quit you

Chorus:

In a matter of time
You're gonna burn me again
Light me up just long enough
For me to feel like it's something
You give me what I want
Pressing me to your lips
But you'll put me out again
Like the end of this cigarette

Verse 2:

I've seen warning signs
Paid a high price for you
Spent all my better years
Don't have much left to lose
Sometimes I feel just like
Living and dying is one in the same
Like a vapor I'm the paper you're the flame


Bridge:

Sweet addiction when will it end
When will I just let you go
I'm out of reasons as all I believe in
Recklessly goes up in smoke

Out chorus:

You give me what I want
Pressing me to your lips
But you'll put me out again
Like the end of this cigarette
