Up in Smoke

from by The Ativans



Guess it all caught up with me
I used to think I was so bloody clever
Never thought I’d feel so small
Really it’s only my fault

I’m getting good at letting go
But still I wanted you to know
I won’t forget you

I think finally understand that
The morale of the story’s a joke
Still I never thought it’d all go up in smoke

I guess it’s always been sink or swim
You took off before the winter weather
Never thought it could be so cold
It felt worse being all by myself

I used to believe that things happened for good reason
But never thought you’d be leaving
