Him and Nicotine

Just beyond those big, bright lights is a world it seems she’ll never find
She only believes in what she sees
There’s a million ways of skipping town, but she always seems to stick around
Happiness to her ain’t to be free when she’s got him and nicotine

The desert sand blows through her hair as she wipes the tears away
Another son done come and gone, you can see it in her face
Cause the cigarettes don’t burn quite like the secret she can’t tell
With her head held high and a deep sense of pride, it’s just water in the well

Just beyond those big, bright lights is a world it seems she’ll never find
She only believes in what she sees
There’s a million ways of skipping town, but she always seems to stick around
Happiness to her ain’t to be free when she’s got him and nicotine

Maybe there’s something the water; maybe there’s something in the wine
Maybe there’s something that she can’t let go of or something she won’t leave behind
Maybe there’s something the water; maybe there’s something in the wine
Maybe there’s something that she can’t let go of or something she won’t leave behind

Just beyond those big, bright lights is a world it seems she’ll never find
She only believes in what she sees
There’s a million ways of skipping town, but she always seems to stick around
Happiness to her ain’t to be free when she’s got him and nicotine
