Lyrics

Cigarette, the break up friend
Home at dawn to make amends
A flippant word, a cruel aside
The worm is turning deep inside

Darkened eye, the loosened hair
I can’t pretend that I don’t care
Cigarette, the missing band
The cigarette

I have counted the ways
I have counted the ways
And the waves that break upon the shores

The three day stubble, the gloomy looks
Won’t find the answer in your God damn books
The secrets mounting, the city’s hot
The tempered frayed, the nerves are shot

Stain is spreading, it leads right through
Voices fading, no longer true
Can’t change the river, can’t change the sea
Can’t change the tide back to me

I have counted the ways
I have counted the ways
And the waves that break upon the shores

I have counted the ways
Yeh
I have counted the days
I have counted
I have counted the ways
I have counted
The waves that break upon the shore
