This could be my last cigarette
No, this could be my last regret
I sat and watched the matches burn down
down down down down to my fingertips
I sat and thought of you
A thought or two and I, and I can't resist.

And the lights, they dim like I knew they would
When it gets dark I start to think of you
'Cuz friends don't even compare to you
I just want something I can hold on to
When times get bad, my habit just got worse

This could be my last cigarette
No, this could be my last regret
I sat and watched the matches burn down
down down down down to my fingertips
I sat and thought of you
A thought or two and I, and I can't resist.

And the lights, they dim like I knew they would
When it gets dark I start to think of you
'Cuz friends don't even compare to you
I just want something I can hold on to
When times get bad, my habit just got worse

1, 2 I love the way you kiss me
You know we're never gonna get it right
I need something to hold me
I need something for the winter time
We sat inside the headlights
You laughed about the life I talked about the dreams
And now I know you're on your way
You're leaving with all the best intentions
and you're all buttoned up
Slam the door
You leave the car
You take a walk I used to walk you on
I walk I used to oh

When it gets dark I start to think of you
'Cuz friends don't even compare to you
I just want something I can hold on to
When times get bad, my habit just got worse

This could be my last cigarette
This could be my last cigarette
This could be my last cigarette

    General Commentthe lyrics are very easy to relate to.

    smoking cigarettes is a lot of people's escape from troubled relationship. this is talking about their relationship not quite working out, but wanting to make it happen no matter what.

    "When times get bad, my habit just got worse"-- meaning hes not focused on quitting, hell continue to smoke just as he continues on with the troubled relationship.
