Lyrics

smoke signals 2

smile said the button on the side of her bag
that rode on her shoulder as she walked
drawn from it a compact, eyeliner and a packet of indonesian cigarettes
fragrance sweet like candy floating up and all around her
she’s swaying like an ancient thurible
under streetlights and cathedrals with their rocket ship steeples
on her way to some place I can’t say

and every time she lights one up
she sends a message to the stars above
smoke signals in the night

from the bottom of his glass he could see her gently pass
as a tiny graceful figurine
he is sitting on the porch where they used to kiss at night
to the music of the city’s traffic drone

and every time she lights one up
she sends a message to the starts above
smoke signals in the night

was is something that he did that has sent her on her way
or maybe something other he’s not sure
could he find out what it was
could he put his finger on It
could he read her smoke signals in the night

and every time she lights one up
It sends a message to the stars above
smoke signals in the night
