Smoke - Lyrics

The last war to wage
As you're turning the page
You won't see your son come of age
But you know
You're not alone
You're just going home
Won't say we won't cry
We're not good at goodbyes
It's been quite a while, since we spoke
But you lit the cigarette, I watched you fly free
As you rose up in smoke

Dad I was too rash
No, I shouldn't have lashed
I now stand in front of your ash
Didn't know
We couldn't have known
That you were alone
That wasn't a life
Afraid that your wife
Will turn family into the edge of the knife
Bleeding you out
We let you down
Now you're not around

You carried the blame
Shouldered the shame
Returned to a house without a name

There were nights that I woke
To the faint wisp of smoke
Of a broken man at the end of his rope
But now dad, you're home

But we were too late
To carry the weight
You bore for us all yesterday
The bottle is cold
Spirit and soul
Emptied and broke
We should have asked why
Before we set fire
To the man that we loved
To the man we let die
We stand in the rain
That washed out your pain
Till we meet again
