"Smoke Signals" as written by and James Blount Danny Parker....
One by one they
Pass me by
And I've used up
My supplies
Out of water
Out of hope
Can't make fire
Only smoke

Here I am alone in silence
Cast away on a desert island
A traveller in an ocean lost at sea

Smoke signals in the night sky
Hope you see them as you pass by
I'm screaming from the cliff top
You're the only one I got
To rescue me, to rescue me
Why can't you see, why can't you see?
I don't think that I'll survive
I'll die here without you
Oh, I can't live without you

The sun comes up, the sun goes down
Wonder if I'll
Ever be found?

Here I am alone in silence
Cast away on a desert island
A traveller in an ocean lost at sea

Smoke signals in the night sky
Hope you see them as you pass by
I'm screaming from the cliff top
You're the only one I got
To rescue me, to rescue me
Why can't you see, why can't you see?
I don't think that I'll survive
I'll die here without you
Oh, I can't live without you

Smoke signals in the night sky
Hope you see them as you pass by
I'm screaming from the cliff top
You're the only one I got
To rescue me, to rescue me
Why can't you see, why can't you see?
I don't think that I'll survive
I'll die here without you
Oh, I can't live without you

    My InterpretationHe feels like he is at the end of his journey and she just doesn't see what he sees or feels what he feels. He feels that everything is running out, even time for him and is begging for a second chance or just to be noticing by her before it is too late.
