Cigarette for breakfast
Spent all my money last night at the bar
Made my dash, my last fighting chance
Not even money for gas
To find a way to hide these scars
Remind me that I tried too hard
Even had to push my car

I took a stance, took a risk at first
And made it only so far
Before we watched the walls come down
Around the art, around the art

I could have put up a better fight
You could have gone and seen the light
I should have known when I first saw you
We could have tried to hold on tight
Could have tried with all our might
I should have known when I first saw you

I took a stance, took a risk at first
And made it only so far
Before we watched the walls come down
Around the art, around the art

I could have put up a better fight
You could have gone and seen the light
I should have known when I first saw you
We could have tried to hold on tight
Could have tried with all our might
I should have known when I first saw you

I should have known, I should have known
I should have known when I first saw you (2x)

Cigarette for breakfast
Since nothing else was there

    General Comment*I took a stance, took a risk at BEST

    Before we watched the walls come down around the YARD, around the YARD

    *I could have put up a better fight
    You could have LISTENED and seen the light
