Cocaine and Cigarettes

By Huey Lewis

Incense and cigarettes
They keep me on track
I'm better off in this world
Then I was the last

That's when I met you girl
You made me feel good
Got lost inside your world
You knew I would
Cause you're my addiction.

Cocaine and Cigarettes
They left me on my back
I got lost in that world
And I never made it back

That's when I met you girl
You made me feel good
I've dropped down inside your world
I knew I would
You're my addiction

    Like lyrics to an unwritten classic song. Simple yet complex.

    Simple, but a joy to read. Reminds me of country music, when country music was good. The repetition gives a gentle, breezy feel. Write on, man. And welcome to DP.
