She said I never really thought I'd need this
I said my goal is to be cigarettes to you
it might sound dangerous but that just means it's worth it
I said I wanna get the shakes out lady
she said you don't know what you're getting into boy
this is a story where the epilogue is endless

c'mon c'mon freak out (this audio survival)
tune in and turn it out (this rock n roll revival)
cause I know, i know, i know you're only pretty when you walk away
yeah yeah, sham on

we've got a problem baby let's get hip
I wanna be cool but all that I can be is honest
and open up to let the pain pour from the pen

c'mon c'mon freak out (this audio survival)
tune in and turn it out (this rock n roll revival)
cause I know, i know, i know you're only pretty when you walk away
yeah yeah, sham on

sham on!

So c'mon c'mon freak out (this audio survival)
tune in and turn it out (this rock n roll revival)
cause I know, i know, i know you're only pretty when you walk away
yeah yeah, sham on

    General CommentWell,
    I mean, I use "Cigarettes to you" as a personal quote...Meaning :
    You hate me and want me gone forever.
    Or need me to live.

    Makes sense, right?
