Smoke in Her Eyes

Album: Did It for the Party (2017)
  • If she rolls up in a cab and she steps out in black
    And you never seen her looking more beautiful than that
    If she goes walking by throws you a dangerous smile
    And be careful to give that girl some space for a while
    If she's sipping Petrone
    And flipping thorugh her phone
    You could ask her to dance I'd probably leave her alone

    She says she ain't about to cry
    That's just smoke in her eyes
    But it's a lie
    She's drinking off a bad goodbye
    She didn't come outta here for the band or the beer
    She's here hellbent on wrecking some guy
    She's looking good, looking fine
    She ain't looking for a good time tonight
    And that ain't smoke in her eyes
    No that ain't smoke in her eyes

    If her drinks a little low and she's looking your way
    And you catch yourself trying to think of something to say
    Don't try to be a hero, don't make that move
    And damn sure don't believe her when she tells you

    Yeah she ain't about to cry
    That's just smoke in her eyes
    But it's a lie
    She's drinking off a bad goodbye
    She didn't come in here for the band or the beer
    She's here hellbent on wrecking some guy
    She's looking good, looking fine
    She ain't looking for a good time tonight
    And that ain't smoke in her eyes
    No that ain't smoke in her eyes

    She says she ain't about to cry
    That's just smoke in her eyes
    But it's a lie
    She's drinking off a bad goodbye
    She didn't come in here for the band or the beer
    She's here hellbent on wrecking some guy
    She's looking good, looking fine
    She ain't looking for a good time tonight
    Yeah she's looking good, looking fine
    She ain't looking for a good time tonight
    And that ain't smoke in her eyes
    No that ain't smoke in her eyes

    No that ain't smoke in her eyes
