Sex & Cigarettes – Ilana Charnelle

From the EP Speakeasy (2011)

 

Take it real slowly, touch it to your lips

Breathe in just a little to begin with

Let it all out gently, but savour that burn

Even though it hurts a little, you won’t learn

 

Coz the poison is delicious

When it comes straight from your eyes

And now you’ve lit my fire

Baby, you won’t  let it die

 

You said, ‘A little bit can’t hurt you

How can just a taste be bad?’

And I thought I could believe you

So I took another drag

Yes I took another drag

 

So the smoke will lift, but the ash remains

Joy fades, but an addiction stays

The heat’s so tempting, but not for long

Anything that deadly will go wrong

 

The fire keeps on burning

You saw to it I’m hooked

This smoke I keep on breathing

Is stronger than it looks

 

You said, ‘I’ll never hurt you

So how can this be bad?’

And I thought I could believe you

So I went back to your bed

Yes I went back to your bed

Your bed

Your, your, your, your

 

You said, ‘I’ll never hurt you

So how could this be bad?’
