"Back In This Cigarette" as written by and Joe Doyle Michael Mobley....
It's two AM in my new home - this motel room
An ash tray full of lucky strikes
A half spent case of warm Bud Lite
Counting regrets, fighting back tears
Retracin' steps, gettin' nowhere

Callin' your name, it's a waste of my breath
There's no reachin' you across this cold and empty bed
Stirrin' up ashes, tryin' to find passion where there's no love left
It's like tryin' to put smoke
Back in this cigarette

Come sunrise, guess I'll check out, and ditch this town
Put a few more miles between us
And keep drivin' till I finally mend my broken trust
Hangin' my hopes on highway signs
If I lie here, I'll lose my mind

Callin' your name, it's a waste of my breath
There's no reachin' you across this cold and empty bed
Stirrin' up ashes, tryin' to find passion where there's no love left
It's like tryin' to put smoke
Back in this cigarette

I may never know your reasons why
But someday, I'm gonna see the good in your goodbye

Callin' your name, it's a waste of my breath
There's no reachin' you across empty bed
Stirrin' up ashes, tryin' to find passion where there's no love left
It's like tryin' to put smoke
Back in this cigarette

    General CommentThis song is about a relationship gone bad. The girl he was broke it off. He is moving on and just wants to leave town. "Hanging my hopes on highway signs." Everything he wanted or dreamed about he has to leave behind while driving on the highway. He explains there is no way he can get the love back. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE. Just like putting smoke back in a cigarette.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a girl that you have spent time with; put yourself out there to, she possibly has something else on her mind or something else that she wants and cuts you off/tells you goodbye. Later finding in yourself that it's all for the better because there's more out there for you.
