Why? Oh, why?
Gave you several years of my life
And it just ain't right
What's your perception of love

Now, how many times did we say it was over?
And how many times did we not leave?
There's no sense in this love hangover
Please, come back to me

'Cause I can't forget your ways
I still remember our first kiss, oh

I'm nervous and tremblin'
Smokin' cigarettes at night
Wonderin' where you been
Smokin' cigarettes at night
I can't cope with this
Smokin' cigarettes at night, no
You're the one to help me quit
Smokin' cigarettes at night

In the midnight hour, late in the midnight hour
I see the etch of your face
And it makes it hard for me to breathe
What can I do to change your decision?
Please, work with me, me

Sometimes my eyes won't close from weepin'
And sometimes I can't wake up from sleepin', why?
'Cause you keep callin' me
Keep callin' me in my dreams

I can't forget your ways
I still remember our first kiss

You got me nervous and tremblin'
Smokin' cigarettes at night, oh
Wonderin' where you been?
Smokin' cigarettes at night, ooh
I can't cope with this
Smokin' cigarettes at night, ooh
You're the one to help me quit
Smokin' cigarettes at night

No more Winston's, Salem's, Marlboro Lights
Don't matter what the kind
'Cause you got me smoking out on you
Got me puffin' 'bout a pack a night
And I know it ain't healthy, yeah, yeah, yeah

Nervous and tremblin', yeah, yeah
Smokin' cigarettes at night, oh
Wonderin' where you been?
Smokin' cigarettes at night
I can't cope with this
Smokin' cigarettes at night
You're the one to help me quit
Smokin' cigarettes at night

Nervous and tremblin'
Smokin' cigarettes at night
I'm nervous and tremblin'
Wonderin' where you been?
Smokin' cigarettes at night
I can't cope with this
Smokin' cigarettes at night, smokin'
You're the one to help me quit
Smokin' cigarettes at night

No, it ain't healthy
Smokin'
Gotta quit
You're the only one
