Inanimate Song: Challenge Me 2014 from IsaacLastname

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



CHORUS
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. 


 


CHORUS


 


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.
