Taking up smoking just to busy my hands,
Because in social situations, I'm never too sure of what to do with them.
(Because otherwise I'd grab you by the hair demanding some answers as to why you just don't care 'bout any of the many things we've shared.)
I just keep it in my head, and just light another cigarette instead.
Taking up smoking just to busy my hands
Because maybe then you won't notice just how often they shake when in your presence.
And with every exhaled cloud of smoke,
There's the raspy whisper of the words I never spoke,
And now I'm ashing on my feet again, keeping my head down, and lighting another cigarette instead.
