like a cigarette

 

I AM THINKING OF YOU

FROM THIS DIRTY LANDFILL

FULL OF OLD WORN-OUT  SHOES

THEY LOOK JUST LIKE ME.

 

THERE’S NO ONE TO TALK TO

ALL OUR FRIENDS TOOK YOUR SIDE

AND THEY’LL BE TRUE TO YOU

‘CAUSE YOU THREW

DUST IN THEIR EYES

 

THEY DON’T KNOW YOU ARE UNFAIR

I NEARLY FELL OFF MY CHAIR

WHEN I SAW YOU STANDING THERE

HIDING YOUR NOSE IN HER HAIR

 

I THOUGHT YOU WERE MY MAN

MY PERSONAL SUPERMAN

BUT YOU’RE ACTING INSANE

JUST LIKE A BIG PETER PAN.

 

YOU’RE LIKE A CIGARETTE

BURNING UP MY BREATH

I’M ADDICTED TO YOU

BUT BABY YOU’RE NO GOOD

YOU’RE LIKE A CIGARETTE

BLOWING OUT TOO FAST

OUT WITH OLD, IN WITH NEW

THAT’S JUST WHAT I SHOULD DO.

 

IT’S SO HARD TO BE TRUE

I CAN’T GET NO RELIEF

I’M STUCK IN YOUR VOODOO

THERE’S NO WAY OUT OF HERE.

 

I PUT MY TRUST IN YOU

AND I GAVE YOU MY KEY

BUT LIKE A BOLT FROM THE BLUE

I CAME BACK TO REALITY.

 

‘CAUSE I KNOW YOU ARE UNFAIR

I NEARLY FELL OFF MY CHAIR

WHEN I SAW YOU STANDING THERE

HIDING YOUR NOSE IN HER HAIR

 

I THOUGHT YOU WERE MY MAN

MY PERSONAL SUPERMAN

BUT YOU’RE ACTING INSANE

JUST LIKE A BIG PETER PAN.

YOU’RE LIKE A CIGARETTE

BURNING UP MY BREATH

I’M ADDICTED TO YOU

BUT BABY YOU’RE NO GOOD

YOU’RE LIKE A CIGARETTE

BLOWING OUT TOO FAST

OUT WITH OLD, IN WITH NEW

THAT’S JUST WHAT I SHOULD DO.
