Cigarette Daydreams

Album: Melophobia (2013)
  • Did you stand there all alone?
    Oh I cannot explain what's going down
    I can see you standing next to me
    In and out somewhere else right now
    You sigh, look away
    I can see it clear as day
    Close your eyes, so afraid
    Hide behind that baby face

    Do do do do do do

    You can drive all night
    Looking for answers in the pouring rain
    You wanna find peace of mind
    Looking for the answer

    Funny how it seems like yesterday
    As I recall you were looking out of place
    Gathered up your things and slipped away
    No time at all I followed you into the hall
    Cigarette daydream
    You were only seventeen
    Soft speak with a mean streak
    Nearly brought me to my knees

    Do do do do do do

    You can drive all night
    Looking for the answers in the pouring rain
    You wanna find peace of mind
    Looking for the answer

    If we could find a reason, a reason to change
    Looking for the answer
    If you could find a reason, a reason to stay
    Standing in the pouring rain

    Do do do do do do

    You can drive all night
    Looking for answers in the pouring rain
    You wanna find peace of mind
    Looking for the answer

    If we could find a reason, a reason to change
    Looking for the answer
    If you could find a reason, a reason to stay
    Standing in the pouring rain Writer/s: Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz, Jared Champion, Daniel Tichenor, Lincoln Parish
