Cigarette (Album Version)

Cigarette (Album Version)

Laura Bell Bundy

Shoulda stayed lonely, shoulda stayed bored and broken
I shoulda been alright, just for the night
But this noise in my head on my cold empty bed
Makes me need somethin' to pass the time
Damn this old weakness, the first taste of sweetness
The lump in my throat, ya give a girl enough rope

Shoulda let my hair down for dancing
Shoulda wrapped myself in a blanket
Shoulda been drinkin' just to forget
Shoulda left my lipstick on a cigarette

Tried to put you out, tried to clear the air
But Iâ??m breathin' your breath as I die a slow death
What burns like a flash is ashes to ashes

Shoulda let my hair down for dancing
Shoulda wrapped myself in a blanket
Shoulda been drinkin' just to forget
Shoulda left my lipstick on a cigarette

Shoulda closed my eyes to dream about you holdin' me

Shoulda let my hair down for dancing
Shoulda wrapped myself in a blanket
Shoulda been drinkin' just to forget
Shoulda left my lipstick on a cigarette

Shoulda left my lipstick on a cigarette

Mm, mm, mm
Mm, mm, mm
