I Light it Up

by Thomas K. Hunt

I light it up to get away
Find a corner in my mind where I can hide from the day
Where no one knows where I'll be found
Where no one finds me in my safe and sound

I light it up to get away
All that smoke does is fade away
Here for a moment then gone with the wind
It all blows away again and again
Bring it into focus
once the smoke all clears
No matter where you are
You have the same fears
I light it up to get away
Leave those fears behind
After the smoke is gone
It still clouds my mind
It happens every time

I light it up to get away
I wouldn't have it any other way
Blowing smoke rings into the night
Keeping their shape for a long short flight
A piece of myself fading in the mist
Pieces of myself that I won't miss

I light it up to get away
That's why I do it everyday
I didn't mean to blow you away
You never felt the breeze
I just lit it up again and I'm ready to leave

I light it up to get away
I traveled again just yesterday
I took a trip along a smokey path
Through the smoke I could see my past
Up ahead and to the right
I turned left into the night
I'm on my way to get away
I'm not here right now
I light it up to get away
If you want I'll show you how

I light it up to get away
I go where I have nothing to say
We don't have to walk
We won't have to talk
It gets a little blurry to see
At least sometimes it is for me
If you miss a step you'll be just fine
It's not that far if you're a step behind
It's not that far to the other side
Just light it up and take that ride

Please don't take them away
My smoke filled days
It does no harm to you
We have a history
Yes this is nothing new
Let there be many or only a few
It's okay if it's what you choose
Light it up and get away
In the end it's all okay
I'm on my way to get away
I'm not here right now
I light it up to get away
If you want I'll show you how
