Last Cigarette

Album: Double Down (2015)
  • I'm leaving you this Tuesday
    Before I lose a lung
    'Cause we can't break up halfway
    So light the fuse and run
    I'm leaving you this ashtray
    To put beside the desk
    Cause we can't break up halfway
    And I am bored to death

    You'll be striking a match, and cupping your hands
    So I'm getting a patch and making a plan
    Oh yeah, but I can stand

    One last cigarette before I quit
    One last look at it, 'cause we were good at it
    One last cigarette before I quit
    One drag, so good, but I shouldn't have

    Stayed with you for so long
    'Cause now I can't say no
    The smoke I used to float on
    Brought me down so low

    So while your striking a match, and cupping your hands
    I'll be getting a patch, and making a better plan
    But what is better than

    One last cigarette before I quit
    One last look at it, 'cause we were good at it
    One last cigarette before I quit
    One drag, so good, but I shouldn't have

    Made my bed, now I've gotta rise and shine
    To lie in it, with you, would be unkind
    'Cause we both know that I gotta go, oh yeah
    But I got a minute, though

    One last cigarette before I quit
    One last look at it, 'cause we were good at it
    One last cigarette before I quit
    One drag, so good, but I shouldn't have

    One last cigarette before I quit
    One last look at it, 'cause we were good at it
    One last cigarette before I quit
    One drag, so good, but I shouldn't have Writer/s: Darwin Merwan Smith
