  • Watchin' cigarettes burn out
    'Til all the neon gets turned out
    I was so on fire for you, it hurts how
    Fast a cigarette can burn out

    Just watchin' rivers run
    Down the side of my bottle
    Almost like it's cryin' my tears
    Had the world on a string
    And then I lost everything
    And that's how I wound up here

    Watchin' cigarettes burn out
    'Til all the neon gets turned out
    There's nothing left but empty glasses now
    It's all flashes now
    The smokin' memory that ain't nothin' but ashes
    In the low lights
    These done me wrong songs hit me so right
    I'm so on fire for you, it hurts how
    Fast a cigarette can burn out

    If you put your hands on the flame
    You've got no right to complain
    'Cause you know it's gonna leave a mark
    When the glow comes to an end
    Like scattered embers in the wind
    Leaves you lookin' for a brand new spark
    Watchin' cigarettes burn out

    Now with every hit
    I'm gonna quit
    But who am I kiddin'?
    I just can't put you down
    So I keep hangin' around

    Watchin' cigarettes burn out
    'Til all the neon gets turned out
    There's nothing left but empty glasses now
    It's all flashes now
    It's a smokin' memory that ain't nothin' but ashes
    In the low lights
    These done me wrong songs hit me so right
    I'm so on fire for you, it hurts how
    Fast a cigarette can burn out
    I was so on fire for you, it hurts how
    Fast a cigarette can burn out (ooh-ooh) Writer/s: Josh Osborne, Midland Midland, Shane L McAnally
