Smoke Clears

Album: The Good Parts (2017)
  • "You and I, against the world"
    That's what you told me
    That night, in the terminal
    As we were boarding
    And I know you meant it
    Holding my hand so tight as
    We flew, from Lafayette
    Back to Pacific time
    And you lay ya head on my shoulder
    Couple tears were shed over Arizona
    An emotional roller coaster, yeah

    We ride the highs and lows
    We ride the highs and lows

    You'll never be alone
    Even when your world explodes
    'Cause after all the smoke clears
    I will be right here
    I will be right here
    When the smoke clears
    I will be right here
    When the smoke clears

    And when I hit the wall
    Back in December
    I took my hardest fall
    But we fell together
    And we spent the weekend
    Pacing the hotel room at
    The Westin, in Dublin
    Never felt so close to you
    And I laid my head on your shoulder
    By the time we left we were ten years older
    An emotional roller coaster, yeah

    We ride the highs and lows
    We ride the highs and lows

    You'll never be alone
    Even when your world explodes
    Cause after all the smoke clears
    I will be right here
    I will be right here
    When the smoke clears
    I will be right here
    When the smoke clears

    "You and I, against the world"
    That's what you told me

    We ride the highs and lows
    We ride the highs and lows

    You'll never be alone
    Even when your world explodes
    Cause after all the smoke clears
    I will be right here
    I will be right here
