Rachel Fuller - Cigarettes & Housework

rate me

My teenage years were full of fear<br />

I spent most of them inside<br />

Sitting on the telephone<br />

Being bitchy and unkind<br />

<br />

Wandering from room to room<br />

Trying to leave my self behind<br />

Walking with my eyes closed<br />

Pretending to be blind<br />

<br />

Naked in the kitchen<br />

I was smoking in the hall<br />

Vacuuming the sofa<br />

Trying to make sense of it all<br />

<br />

Sweeping under carpet<br />

All my pain with all the dirt<br />

And the only thing that kept me sane<br />

Cigarettes and housework<br />

Cigarettes and housework<br />

<br />

Drowning all my sorrows<br />

In an effort to be free<br />

Playing my piano<br />

Writing the requiem for me<br />

<br />

Thinking I could clean up<br />

All the trouble from yesterday<br />

Or hoping that my cigarette smoke<br />

Would carry it away<br />

<br />

Naked in the kitchen<br />

I was smoking in the hall<br />

Vacuuming the sofa<br />

Trying to make sense of it all<br />

<br />

Sweeping under carpet<br />

All my pain with all the dirt<br />

And the only thing that kept me sane<br />

Cigarettes and housework<br />

Cigarettes and housework<br />

<br />

I had come through the trauma of youth<br />

But once in a while I still find myself<br />

<br />

Naked in the kitchen<br />

Smoking in the hall<br />

Vacuming the sofa<br />

Trying to make sense of it all<br />

<br />

Sweeping under carpet<br />

All my pain with all the dirt<br />

And the only thing that keeps me sane<br />

Cigarettes and housework<br />

Cigarettes and housework
