June

When you've given up the drink and those nasty cigarettes

When you’ve given up the drink and those nasty cigarettes

If you can’t let love go
Douse it with gasoline
Watch it burn and fade away
Then, you can be free

Light a match, and drink it in
’til no longer what it used to be
A faded, jaded memory
Just like you and me

Ashes make no grand puzzle
No hope to piece together this mess
The past is burnt and charred, my dear
I won’t let my future be a guess

So cheers to you – this is the end
A toast to what has been
When flame no longer dances on my face
I will be cold again
