Smoke & Mirrors

Album: Smoke and Mirrors (2010)
  • There was a time, was a place back when
    You and I were living alone together
    We held each other in the middle of the night
    And swore we'd somehow make it better
    We set our sights on the big city lights
    No moss on these rolling stones
    And here we are with everything we ever wanted
    But now we're together alone

    Gotta break out of this place we're in
    Runnin' out of time and out of sin
    We were living smoke and mirrors anyway
    Gonna drive all night 'til we disappear
    Chasing down the miles so far from here
    As the smoke and mirrors start to fade away
    We're still the same

    I remember thinking we could make it out somehow
    If somehow we ever took a chance
    We packed up what we had and threw it in the trunk
    Didn't give our life a second glance
    Now the days roll hard and the nights move fast
    They say be careful what you wish
    But having everything means nothing to me now
    What we had is everything I miss

    Gotta break out of this place we're in
    Runnin' out of time and out of sin
    We were living smoke and mirrors anyway
    Gonna drive all night 'til we disappear
    Chasing down the miles so far from here
    As the smoke and mirrors start to fade away
    You know we're still the same, still the same

    Gonna drive all night 'til we disappear
    Chasing down the miles so far from here
    As the smoke and mirrors start to fade away
    And we're all we've got so let's hold on tight
    To the dreams that came before the fight
    We were living smoke and mirrors anyway Writer/s: JASON MICHAEL WADE, JUDE ANTHONY COLE
