"Cigarette" as written by and Warren Myers Cooke Sean Michael Wellman-mackin....
Watching the days burning out like a cigarette, just a few drags to go.
You built me up and you broke me down, somehow
Everything just seemed so clear to me, nothing left to know
I'll love you right and I'll love you pure, right now

How can you say, that its too late
To save us now

And I would wait for you, if you would wait for me
And I will Wait for you, if you will wait for me

Intoxicated, the edge is serrated, so easily torn from the core
I blushed the first time, but you blushed the last time my eyes hit your mind
Regenerated these feelings of hatred, I long for your love ever more
You built me up and you broke me down this time

And I would wait for you, if you would wait for me
And I will Wait for you, if you will wait for me

How can you say that its too late, to save us now
How can you say

    General Commentthis song is so incredible powerful. everytime i hear it shivers run down my spine and tear well up in my eyes.

    i think the meaning of this song is loving someone that has already let go and knowing that you want them back so much but it just won't happen because they've given up.

    later days all of you spiffy people

    General Commentthis is such an awesome song...i know how it feels to want someone back really badly and this describes it exactly...when you screw up with someone you love (in my case, my first love) you aren't sure what to say or do...for a while i just sent him song lyrics, this being one of them, and we talked about getting back together, but he's moved on because i broke his heart..our love will never die, and we both know that, but sometimes its hard to be with someone forever after you have changed and they have too...so all we can do is look back on what we had and what we have been through and be there for each other as friends...i wish him luck with his new girfriend and i hope he knows that i will always love him and be there for him throughout everything...true love never dies...

AUH! But on a last note this song kicks pure ass:);)
