"cigarettes for breakfast"

"cigarettes for breakfast"
truly by jake kilroy.

cigarettes for breakfast,
gin and tonics for lunch,
i haven't had a good meal today,
but i've got one hell of a hunch.

slumped over myself heavy,
in the backyard of a friend's,
reciting replacements lyrics,
and hoping the rain ends.

wearing yesterdays clothes,
rethinking evenings before,
losing my battles easily,
with sights on winning the war.

now come together for a night
so we can make a toast,
at least to hear that we're here,
always with dear ones close.
