"The Hymn For The Cigarettes" as written by and Darren Hayman....
No one called, no one wrote, no one phoned,
So no one knew that I was with her on my own.
She smoked on my bed cause she thought it would annoy me,
But I love to watch the girls smoke in my bed.
I love to watch the girls smoke in my bed.
I love to watch the girls smoke in my bed.

How can she love me when she doesn't even love the cinema that I love.
What does she feel if she doesn't have the feeling that I have in my fingers.
This joy I have could lift this ceiling from its rafters but I'm not laughing.

We feel nothing, so we search for nothing, so we achieve nothing, love.

Lucky Strikes remind me of my friends out on the west coast,
Camel Lights remind me of my ex-girlfriend at Christmas time,
Marlboro Reds remind me of giving up in Berlin,
B&H remind me of not giving up but giving in.
B&H remind me of not giving up but giving in.
B&H remind me of not giving up but giving in.

How can she love me when she doesn't even love the cinema that I love.
What does she feel if she doesn't have the feeling that I have in my fingers.
This joy I have could lift this ceiling from its rafters but I'm not laughing.

We feel nothing, so we search for nothing, so we achieve nothing, love.

I don't want to stay in love

    General Commentweird as it is..this sng really applies to me. im a smoker..and i adore my ciggs..and thinking about different brands that ive gone through stages of smoking..makes me think of what i was doing in my life at that time. black and milds when i was being a reckless teenager. malboro lights when i was bumming them off my best friend, because my first love didnt like it when i smoked. camel lights was sophmore year..first prom.. surfing..therapy..friends and my real first heart break. hrmph..odd, dontcha think? We feel nothing, so we search for nothing, so we achieve nothing, love." perfect line, great song.

    General Commentif you smoke, it's pretty likely you've come across lucky strikes.. i don't think i've ever heard them referred to as lucky stripes before =P

    perhaps the emptiness of a relationship and the fact they can't move forward, is causing him to reflect and look backwards- cigarettes being his reflective medium of choice..

    once you look at it cigarettes are an amusing and interesting thing to look at..
    i think every smoker, as well as addiction, regards those little white sticks with a certain fondness.. malboro reds [the hard stuff, for when youfirst started and thought they were cool].. LandBs when you realised they were cheap.. menthols when you got bored.. rothmans when you wanted some real nicotine fixing.. lucky strike rolling baccy cause the packet was cool.. golden virginia when you got pretty poor.. designer cigs when you stumbled across a better stocked newsagents you'd never visited before and had more than a fiver in your pocket.. the cheap holiday cigs and the cartons you bought off friends.. and then malboro lights when you realised you were addicted and scared yourself into cutting down..
