Lyrics

Cigarettes and Porch Steps

Written By: Bekah Garton

verse 1:
I breathe it in
the smoke all around us
with coldness flowing through our veins
december air
has never been my favorite
but i'm still out here all the same

verse 2:
we watch headlights
of cars streaming past us
as quickly as camara flashes
my numb fingers
are aching for attention
from ones too busy flicking ashes

chorus:
who knew dirty fingernails
grasping onto plastic lighters
could so easily catch my attention
boy, i never meant to live
on your cigarettes and porch steps
addicted to your every imperfection

verse 3:
I look around
the dirt beneath my feet
where all the cigarette butts stay
i wish i could
tell you how much i hate them
yet I look forward to tomorrow's array

chorus:
who knew dirty fingernails
grasping onto plastic lighters
could so easily catch my attention
boy, i never meant to live
on your cigarettes and porch steps
addicted to...

break/bridge:
you pull it in
you breathe it out
we watch the smoke rise up
you breathe it out
i pull it in
a concrete fiction of us

chorus:
who knew dirty fingernails
grasping onto plastic lighters
could so easily catch my attention
boy, i never meant to live
on your cigarettes and porch steps
addicted to your every imperfection

who knew dirty fingernails
grasping onto plastic lighters
could so easily catch my attention
boy, i never meant to live
on your cigarettes and porch steps

no, i never meant to get addicted...
