Slow Burning Flame
© & (P), I Miss You Records, 2012. Music & Lyrics by Rie Sinclair, BMI

Was it his pretty blue eyes
Or two-timing grin that made it tough to forget?
He broke my heart & smoked my last cigarette

My confidence down, crumpled to the ground
Like an empty Camel pack
He broke my heart & smoked my last cigarette

They say a slow burning flame is better for the extra flavour
But it sure fizzled & faded, left me alone & jaded
They say a slow burning flame will help you relax
How bout that?
Well, I sure could use a carton
Cause He broke my heart & smoked my last cigarette

I caught him like a burr with that Chesterfield girl
In the chicken coop out back
He broke my heart & smoked my last cigarette

Made sure to snuff that flame with my boots while he whined
“Baby please don’t pack”
Ha! You broke my heart & smoked my last cigarette!

They say a slow burning flame is better for the extra flavour
But it sure fizzled & faded, left me alone & jaded
They say a slow burning flame will help you relax
How bout that?
Well, I sure could use a carton
Cause he broke my heart & smoked my last cigarette

Said, “The pleasure’s mine, I’ll light you up”
Just like that I was hooked
He was a match & I was the book

They say a slow burning flame is better for the extra flavour
But it sure fizzled & faded, left me alone & jaded
They say a slow burning flame will help you relax
How bout that?
Well, I sure could use a carton
Cause he broke my heart & smoked my last cigarette
