"Cigarettes and Valentines" as written by and Billie Joe/pritchard Armstrong....
I don't wanna go back home
I don't wanna kiss goodnight
Let us paralyze this moment til it dies

To the end of the earth
Under the Valley of the Stars
There's a car crashing deep inside my heart

Take a ride through the avenues
Across the Great Divide
There's a siren screaming "I'm alive"
It cries

Red alert is the color
Of your paper valentines
Intertwined on this moment passing by

Take a ride through the avenues
Across the Great Divide
There's a siren screaming "I'm alive"
It cries

Red alert is the color
Of your paper valentines
Intertwined on this moment passing by

Do you wanna be my valentine?

So come away with me tonight
With cigarettes and valentines

Cigarettes and valentines!

    General CommentI saw Green Day on August 18th and they played all they're old tunes and it was the greatest moment of my life but I'd give up August 18th for August 21 just to hear this song live for the 1st time ever

    General Commentit's actually the title track from their follow up album to Warning. However the master tapes were stolen from the studio, so they scrapped the project. They started over and began work on what would eventually be Americab Idiot. Now they're going to be releasing a live album that, hopefully, has all of these old tracks.

    My OpinionI love it!! Although it sounds a bit of a mix of American Idiot, Basket Case and a few other songs. Great stuff.
