long walks and cigarette stops (jeffrey's song)

from by doubt

/

about

a song about the people you meet while walking late at night

lyrics

winter nights in birmingham
the streets are dark and i'm a sham
you know my friend, you're always here
don't seem to care how much I share
we're on the corner by the library
sharing stories of false elation
you say be careful walkin' home
you know I haven't got one
and you should know for sure by now,
we all know you're the safe one

these long walks
and these cigarette stops
these days are all I live for
til I stumble home, too cold to turn the key
and pass out tonight on the kitchen floor

sittin on the curb
by your apartment complex gate
smokin my last cigarette, and waitin here on freight
you said these drugs would help me fuck
my everlasting bitterness
they never came, but that's okay
now both of us are in this mess

these long walks
and these cigarette stops
these days are all I live for
til I stumble home, too cold to turn the key
and pass out tonight on the kitchen floor
