I wish I still smoked cigarettes
Light one up and travel time
When a stiff drink and a whispered yes
Was enough to light a fire

Feel alive,
Wish I could go back to those nights
Sometimes

Wish I still drove a muscle car
Horses rumblin' under the hood
Flyin' past the welcome sign under the stars
Wishin' I could leave for good

And I swore I would
Every now and then, I go back to that
Neighborhood

Wish I still did a lot of things
That I don't do anymore
When I didn't know what wasn't good for me
When I knew everything else for sure

I guess what I really miss is the freedom then
The way it felt, the innocence
That's what I really meant
When I said

Wish I still smoked cigarettes
I felt more grown up then
When we were talkin' about where we were gonna go
Instead of talkin' about where we'd been

We'd ride around the lake
And make those plans
Still had the world
In the palm of our hand

Oh, we never had a chance
Now and then

Wish I still did a lot of things
That I don't do anymore
When I didn't know what wasn't good for me
When I knew everything else for sure

I guess what I really miss is the freedom then
The way it felt, the innocence
That's what I really meant
When I said
Wish I still smoked cigarettes

Wish I still smoked cigarettes
Somethin' to calm my nerves
Wherever you are tonight
You were better than I deserve

Wish I still smoked cigarettes
So I had something to let go
Up in smoke
