Cigarettes and Roses
words and music by Lisa Derosia

She writes a letter says we're all doin' fine,
Come down to Georgia.
Let the warm wind whisper a kiss on the back of your hand.
If it was so easy I'd already be gone.

But instead I have to lie down.
With the dogs so here I am.
Waking up with another man.
Who's trying to get home

Cigarettes and roses
Tell me baby is the bottle dead?
Pass it over there's one sip left
and I'm trying to get home.

There's a chance we've all taken
on the love we've been given
and a passion that's shaken us from our sleep.

You try to take me with you.
If only in your dreams.

But instead I have to lie down
With the dogs so here I am.
Waking up with another man
who's trying to get home.

Cigarettes and roses.
Tell me baby is the bottle dead.
Pass it over there's one sip left
and I'm trying to get home.
