CIGARETTES - LYRICS

[Verse 1]
I asked for a drink
She soaked me in gasoline
I asked for her hand
She threw it across my cheek
I asked her to wait
She tied an anchor to me
I asked her to dance
She asked me where is your grave
I told her I’d write her a love song
She only sings when she’s angry
I told her I’d buy her a bouquet of roses
She told me the thorns would be lovely
Maybe I ask far too many questions of her
Lovers will always regret, if you don’t ask, don’t get

[Chorus]
I asked for a cigarette
To settle my nerves
She gave me a firework
You’ll never know smoke like this
Babe light me up
Your smile looks so good while it’s melting
I find the pretty light so inviting

[Verse 2]
I asked for a drink
She soaked me in gasoline
I asked for her hand
She threw it across my cheek
I asked her to wait
She tied an anchor to me
I asked her to dance
She asked me where is your grave
She’s dying to ask do you love me
I’m busy skipping girls heartbeats
I told her be slow we got time on our hands
She took off all her clothes and she kissed me
All that she wants is everything that she can’t
Lovers will always regret if you don’t ask, don’t get

[Chorus]
I asked for a cigarette
To settle my nerves
She gave me a firework
You’ll never know smoke like this
Babe light me up
Your smile looks so good while it’s melting
I find the pretty light so inviting
