Lyrics

Cigarettes, Alcohol, and You
© Susan Anders

I wake up with a headache that I swear could stop a city
Shouldn’t look in the mirror but I do and it’s not pretty
All my bad habits are right there on my face
Feel as empty as those bottles next all those full ashtrays
Last thing I remember we were dancing by the sink
We were toasting all good things like smoke and drink, and--

I was talking like a genius, laughing like a kid,
Buzzing like a neon light all night
That's what I did
I was singing like Elvis, bouncing like a ball
Flying so high above it all
Then I had to fall like I always do
I'm gonna give them up
These things I love
Cigarettes, alcohol and you

Don’t know who it is I’m talking to, you’re long gone
That forever you promised me last night must have died ‘round dawn
But next week you’ll be holding whiskey to my cup
I’ll feel my heart break and fill right up
Then we’ll blow a lot of smoke rings that slowly vaporize
Between the whiskey and your kissing
I’ll believe your lies

They’ll have me:
Talking like a genius, acting like a fool
Buzzing like a neon light all night
That's what they’ll do
I’ll be singing like Elvis, bouncing like a ball
Flying so high above it all
Then I’ll fall
Oh I always do
I'm gonna give them up
These things I love
Cigarettes, alcohol and you

My best friends
But a best friend wouldn’t let you down again and again

I'm gonna give them up
These things I love
Cigarettes, alcohol and you
