IsaacLastname challenged me to write a song that is from the perspective of an inanimate object. I've admittedly put it off because it certainly is a challenge. But here we go!
I tried this from the perspective of a cigarette, or a joint I suppose, to the smoker. I'm not sure how it translated, good luck!
Darling, you've got to give up on me
accept that our love just isn't meant to be
I feel like you're just using me
to get your high, but it's not free
the toll is on me.
Darling, as much as I love your kiss,
it's not the first thing that I will miss,
because when I nestle into your smile
I know I'll be burnt out
Before it's even worth my while
So although I love you,
there's nothing we can do.
Loving you is killing me,
and it's killing you,
just wait and see.
So put out the lighter
There's nothing left to ignite here
There's nothing left of me
You're holding onto traces of what I used to be.
Darling, it won't be easy.
Every moment, you'll miss me.
I've been the air you've breathed for so long,
you say you need me to make you strong
but we know that isn't true
all along, it's just been you.
Darling, put out our love tonight
There's nothing left to ignite
I'm nothing but an ember
I'll leave a sharp burn
so you will remember:
Our love just couldn't be
You're so much better without me.
