My girl and I, sat on the step
Enjoyin our time, the view from the house,
and the woods in front of it
The breeze was cool but her arms were warm, on that summer night
As I leaned in for a peck, something I didn't expect,
caught the corner of my eye

Then smoke killed the atmosphere of love (x4)

Like a bullet, I shot towards the flame
A blaze so hot, and with no one round to blame
The smoke it choked me all of a sudden, I was foggy eyed
and couldn't see nothin' the same
I laid on the ground and looked up to the sky
There was multiple figures then I figured why
They all seemed to yell my name.... because

Smoke killed the atmosphere of love (x4)

If there's one thing I can promise you
The hottest fires burn inside, and that's the truth
So don't abandon your love for your foolish pursuits,
Or you'll be pushin' daisies up from under the roots
Take it from the one who knows what smoke can do... cause

Smoke killed the atmosphere of love (x4)

Smoke killed the atmosphere of love (x6.5)

Background Vocals:
Oooooo, Ooooooo (x∞)
