I light a cigarette
And try to erase everything
That you did
To try and make me smile
A tear rolls down my cheek
I erase everything
That you did
To try and make me smile

How can
You still breathe the air that I breathe
Knowing the heartache that you are
responsible for

I light a cigarette
And try to erase everything
That you did
To try and make me smile
And I erase everything
That you did
That you did
To try and make me smile

How can
You still breathe the air
That I breathe
Knowing the heartache that you are
responsible for
And I erase everything I've known
And I try to smile

And it has all gone wrong (Repeat 4x)

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a breakup in which the girl screwed the guy over. By the sound of the line "How can You still breathe the air that I breathe Knowing the heartache that you are responsible for" she must have done something really horrible, like cheating. I love the emotion and pain that this song conveys. THP really knows how to construct very effective and heart wrenching songs and lyrics. This is my favorite song on the newer album. It has helped me get through my own breakup/heartache.
