I Can Make a Mess Like Nobody's Business - Stop Smoking Because It's Not Good For You

Like a lit cigarette to your lips when it fit
Like the lung to your heart that it loathes
‘cause it wasn’t always broke
holding on so long to something that it loves

Like the hole in the yard that we dug so far
then we left it so long and forgot
‘cause the grass had grown so tall,
erasing all we thought — but when I get close I fall

You say life has got you down
set a course we’re breaking out

This isn’t what you thought it was
I should have known this from the start
Like twenty miles of catacombs
and now you’re with me in my heart
looking on so far, saying, “There, I’ve got you now”

It’s the goals in your mind that you left behind
for the glass is a crutch on the path to always losing touch;
if you blur it just enough you might see what you want.
Now the dirt from the yard blew away so far,
growing more each day ‘til we saw it became a mountain range
and I just stared and blinked, wishing I could change

‘Say life has got you down
Set a course, you’re breaking out
Find the will to make it now
before our time runs out…

Oh, you didn’t want to go
Been holding on so long
And now I know you’ll make it

This isn’t what you thought it was
I should have known this from the start
Like twenty miles of catacombs
and now you’re with me in my heart
looking on so far, saying, “There, I’ve got you now”

Why’d you have to go?
And why’d I wait so long?
