"The Smokey Life" lyrics

The Smokey Life

I've never seen
Your eyes so wide
I've never seen your appetite
Quite this occupied
Elsewhere is your feast of love
I know
Where long ago
We agreed to keep it light
So let's be married one more night

It's light
Light enough
To let it go
It's light
Enough
To let it go

Remember when
The scenery
Started fading
I held you
Till you learned to walk on air
So don't look down
The ground is gone
There's no one waiting anyway
The smokey life is practiced
Everywhere

So set your restless heart at ease
Take a lesson
From these autumn leaves
They waste no time
Waiting for the snow
Don't argue now
You'll be late
There is nothing to investigate

It's light enough
Light enough
To let it go
Light
Enough
To let it go

Remember when
The scenery started fading
I held you
Till you learned to walk on air
So don't look down
The ground is gone
There's no one waiting anyway
The smokey life is practiced
Everywhere

Come on back
If the moment lends
You can look up
All my very closest friends

Light
Light enough
To let it go
It's light
Enough
To let it go
