Character Actors

(music/lyrics: Gaba Kulka)

Light another one I don't mind
what's a little smokescreen between friends
It's Wednesday night or Tuesday morning
I'm so glad you're here just
watching this woman dissolve
anytime anything brings her little red heart to a boil 

See, they'd trust her with a baby
they wouldn't trust her with a dog
they say a mad-busy schedule
wouldn't allow for regular walks
so she's got an escape route
and dreams about never getting caught

But tonight with her confidence gone
drawing the smoke spilling out of your lips
don't worry - tomorrow 

she will be back to falling in love with character actors
who will distract her with local accents
and who's to say
it's easier that way
than drowning in all your nicotine smoke 

She can't understand how some people can
hold balance while standing still
and each time she moves closer, she feels safe, she knows that
she's got that escape route tattooed underneath all these clothes

she tells you she loves
drawing the smoke spilling out of your lips
don't ask her about it tomorrow 

she will be back to falling in love with character actors
who will distract her with locals accents
and who's to say
it's safer that way
than drowning in all your nicotine

she's back to falling in love

and that's not to say
she likes it that way
when she feels really broken
she turns into a joke
and say: I'm breathing
I'm still breathing, I'm only breathing
I don't really smoke
