Blues Traveler

Can't Get A Light

Music & Lyrics: John Popper

 

Driving around on a Monday morning

Got school in four hours, but I blew my last warning

Not much point in going today

They don't need me anyway

Decided I'm tired of looking for the catch

I'm down to my last cigarette

Gonna smoke it down, and try to forget

I know I could make it through the night

If I could only get a light

But as it happens, I don't have a match

 

I'm in love, I'm in hock

I'm flunking school, don't know why I'm shocked

I said, the worst, the worst of all, I can't get a light

 

Well, I'm always in my bit of debt

I bet I owe someone my last cigarette

In fact, everything I have, I owe

My mind, my soul, my clothes, my dough

I guess someday, I'll pay off my dues

Well, I'm still driving, and heading south

With an unlit cigarette hanging out my mouth

It won't be long before the dawn

Still with all my matches gone

And I'm just awake enough to get the blues

 

I'm in love, I'm in hock

I'm flunking school, don't know why I'm shocked

I said, the worst, the worst of all, I can't get a light

Nothing's coming right

 

Well, I'm just too tired to think about my baby

Is she a yes, or just another maybe

I wish that I could tell her so

But I'm just too scared to let her know

Just how it is I want things to be

Well, if I could have just one last smoke

Life might seem like just another joke

Tomorrow wouldn't be so bad

I wish it was a match I had

A smoke is quite essential to someone like me

 

I'm in love, I'm in hock

I'm flunking school, don't know why I'm shocked

I said, the worst, the worst of all, I can't get a light

 

Well, so a brand new day's begun

But I just cannot seem to get this game won

I guess I'm sorta lucky, though

Cause everybody tells me so

Blew my last chance a long time ago, there's nothing left but strife

Well, maybe someday I'll get out from under

And everybody gonna feel my thunder

But I don't think it'll go down that way

If I'm having trouble lasting one more day

Cigarettes and no matches

That's the story of my life

Where's that rusty knife

 

I'm in love, I'm in hock

I'm flunking school, don't know why I'm shocked

I said, the worst, the worst of all, I can't get a light
