VERSE 1

Fmaj7 G Em7 Fmaj7

Leaf by leaf and page by page

G Em7 Fmaj7

Throw this book away

G Em7 Fmaj7

All the sadness all the rage

G Em7 Fmaj7

Throw this book away

 

VERSE 2

Rip out the binding and tear the glue

All the grief we never even knew

We had it all along

Fmaj7 G

Now it's smoke

 

Fmaj7 Fmaj9 G Em7 Fmaj7

Fmaj7 Fmaj9 G Em7 G/F Fmaj7

 

VERSE 3

All the things we've written in it

Never really happened

All the things we've written in it

Never really happened

 

VERSE 4

All of the people come and gone

Never really lived

And all the people come have gone

No one to forgive

Smoke

BRIDGE

C Am7 Em7 Fmaj7

We will not write a new one

C Am7

There will not be a new one,

G/F Fmaj7 G/F Fmaj7

ano - ther one, ano - ther one

 

VERSE 5

Here's an evening dark with shame

Throw it on the fire

Here's the time I took the blame

Throw it on the fire

 

VERSE 6

Here is the time we didn't speak

It seemed, for years and years

and here's the secret

No one will ever know

The reasons for the tears

G Fmaj7 G Fmaj7 G Fmaj7

They are smoke, smoke, smoke

 

Fmaj7

 

BRIDGE

We will not write a new one

There will not be a new one

Another one

Another one

 

Fmaj7 G Em7 Fmaj7

VERSE 7

Where do all the secrets live

They travel in the air

You can smell them when they burn

They travel

 

VERSE 8

Those who say the past is not dead

Stop and smell the smoke

You keep saying the past is not dead

Well stop and smell the smoke

You keep on saying the past is not even past

And you keep saying

We are smoke

Smoke

Fmaj7

Smoke
