Well I won't make you tell me
What I've come to understand
You're a certain kind of woman
I'm a different kind of man

I've tried to make you love me
You've tried to find a spark
Of the flame that burned
But somehow turned to smoke rings in the dark

The loneliness within me
Takes a heavy toll
'Cause it burns as slow as whiskey
Through an empty aching soul

And the night is like a dagger
Long and cold and sharp
As I sit here on the front steps
Blowing smoke rings in the dark

I know I must be going
'Cause love's already gone
And all I'm taking with me
Are the pieces of my heart
And all I'll leave are smoke rings in the dark

The rain falls where it wants to
Wind blows where it will
Everything on earth goes somewhere
But I swear we're standin' still

So, I'm not going to wake you
I'll go easy on your heart
I'll just touch your face and drift away
Like smoke rings in the dark

I know I must be going
'Cause loves already gone
And all I'm taking with me
Are the pieces of my heart
And all I'll leave are smoke rings in the dark

HOUSTON, ROBERT BOYD / RUTHERFORD, MELVERN RIVERS II
