She draws out, the cigarette smoke trail spins
Thoughts crowd the room, ’til it’s only her
She feels it, she lives for it
Spent half a life pushing it forward, what she wouldn’t give for it
Saw naysayers put in their places
Feels like she’s scaling the foothills of greatness
Holding all four aces, she braced
for the next few years being some for the ages
No time to heed, pride come before the fall
For now she shines, all rose, no thorn
Full bloom, like his plan fool proof
High noon sun beaming, spoke to soon
The dark clouds scream towards her door
and a house of cards, it cant stand in the storm
Wind picked up, sunshine stopped
The world came down with the very first drop

So light me up, like a cigarette
And just let me burn, catch fire, and burn, catch fire and burn
Light a spark, and ignite it in the dark
So when I’m no more they’ll know i was here before, so let me just burn

She still gunning, beaten but refused to be broken
What some call delusional others call focus
Man she’s focussed, came back for the re up
Nows not the time to kick back with her feet up
Stands in the rain with her face to the heavens
And her arms outstretched from the pain that she let in
World keep kicking hard, ain’t gonna get her
She’s willing to fight and die for the path that she heads in
And thats a bittersweet faith
Knowing high and lows will come boy but them’s the breaks
It’s pride, it’s madness, it’s seeing what others can only imagine
And then reaching out to grab it
Saying “I can say that whatever comes happens
but i followed my heart my goddamn it”
Exposing reality to magic
It’s hope, and thats all it is, she walked through fire and its all she came back with, saying

So light me up, like a cigarette
and just let me burn, catch fire, and burn, catch fire and burn
Light a spark, and ignite it in the dark
So when im no more they’ll know i was here before, so let me just burn

Come what may, some memories fade
But some stay as vivid as the moment they were made
Dreams of the days where she stood like a mountain
It’s been a while since then but who’s counting
She lies awake, lies in wait, for the light of the morning to bless her, and shine again
Summon the rise of the fallen
Laces tied, comeback trail still walking
Lives for it, lifetime on the mish for it
Man, there ain’t a thing she didn’t give for it
Make a bet till her last sun sets
She’ll be pushing for the light, mate she ain’t done yet
Head held high slow danced through her hell
Still a point there she gotta prove to herself
And, the beat drops, same songs on next
So she sparks up a cigarette, takes a deep breath and says

Light me up, like a cigarette
And just let me burn, catch fire, and burn, catch fire and burn
Light a spark, and ignite it in the dark
So when im no more they’ll know i was here before, so let me just burn

Light me up, like a cigarette
And just let me burn, catch fire, and burn, catch fire and burn
Strike a spark, and ignite it in the dark
So when im no more they’ll know i was here before, so let me just burn
