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.
