Smoke From a Distant Fire
You left me here on your way to paradise
You pulled the rug right out from under my life
I know where you goin’ to I knew when you came home last night
'Cause your eyes had a mist from the smoke of a distant fire
Lord, I was stunned shoulda' seen it come a long time ago.
When I realized the reality gave me a roll
If things are the same then explain why your kiss is so cold
and that mist in your eyes feels like rain on the fire in my soul
This lying, and cryin', it's upsettin' and gettin' ya no where
It don't stack up, so slack up then pack up
I just don't care
Don't let the screen door hit you, on your way out.
Don't you drown when your dream boat runs onto the ground
I'd just like to know do you love him or just making time
by filling his glass with your fast flowing bitter-sweet lime.
You'll face the aftertaste when you come home late some night.
With your eyes all a mist from the smoke of a distant fire.
Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire.
