NOTHING BUT SMOKE 

 

Poured myself some coffee,black as coal

rubbed my eyes and hit the road

my destination, I ain't telling a soul

could be 'cuz I don't know

I gotta get myself somewhere out there on my own

 

Those walls have been creeping in on me for too long

taking my freedom away

nobody to blame but myself, I suppose

I couldn't take one more day,

I would've died if I had stayed, I know

now its over.

 

Now its over, there's nowhere else we can go

there ain't no getting around it, we can't go straight through

there's not a single goddam thing that either one of us can do

there used to be fire

now there's nothing but smoke

 

I thought it was real

I doubled down and I bet to win

one last wager on love

I figured luck might give me a smile

since I'd lost so many times

but here I am with nothing to show (why)

 

Now its over, there's nowhere else we can go 

there ain't no getting around it, we can't go straight through 

there's not a single goddam thing that either one of us can do 

there used to be fire 

now there's nothing but smoke

Can I get some guitar?
