"Last Cigarette" as written by Jon Bon Jovi and David Bryan....
Regrets are all you left on your lipstick stains
Take a picture of our past there in that ashtray
We had our fun, I used to light your flame
Like the dancing smoke that rose we tried to find our way
No one told me, she told me

Your love's like one last cigarette
Last cigarette, I will savor it
The last cigarette
Take it in and hold your breath, hope it never ends
But when it's gone, it's gone
The last cigarette

Just to breathe reminds me of what used to be
The smoke's the ghost that keeps you close when I can't sleep
Don't ask the past to last; it's about to change
The memories don't answer when I call your name
No one told me, she told me

Your love's like one last cigarette
Last cigarette, I will savor it
The last cigarette
Take it in and hold your breath, hope it never ends

But when it's gone, it's gone
One last cigarette, last cigarette
One I can't forget, the last cigarette
Right there at my fingertips, I got your taste still on my lips

Right or wrong
You're still gone, gone, gone
The last cigarette

No one told me, she told me
You always lose the girl in a Brian Wilson world

Your love's like one last cigarette
Last cigarette, I will savor it
The last cigarette
Take it in and hold your breath, hope it never ends

But when it's gone, it's gone
One last cigarette, last cigarette
One I can't forget, the last cigarette
Right there at my fingertips, I got your taste still on my lips

Right or wrong
You're still gone, gone, gone
The last cigaretteâ?¦

    General CommentHe's dangerously addictied to a girl, he realizes he must givie up a love he held dear because he knows its killing him and that she holds too much power over him. He is comming to the decision to cut her loose, but never to regret.

    General CommentI love this song.

    "Your loves like one last cigarrette." The relationship is bad for him, but he has to have that last night together. He'll cherish it, savor it, but he knows it has to be his last hurrah. And it probably won't be.

    General CommentSo Brian Wilson was the lead singer of the Beach Boys... what does the line mean? I've been trying but I can't figure it out. I'm too young to have really listened to the Beach Boys, so I don't know if it's a reference to one of their songs.

    Anyone?
