Secondhand Smoke

Kelsea Ballerini

Sometimes you could hear a pin drop
Or the ticking of the clock
Between the surface conversation
No matter what they were saying
They never talked
Sometimes I would hear 'em screaming
When they thought that I was sleeping
They'd just fight about whatever
I don't know if they ever had a reason

Am I the product of a problem that I couldn't change?
Got his eyes, got her hair
So do I get their mistakes?

I know that you can't walk across a bridge
That's already burned, so
What am I supposed to do?
I can't help that they chose
To breathe it in, but I don't wanna choke
On that secondhand smoke

Sometimes I hear myself saying hand-me-down words
It's so easy to forget that he ain't him and I ain't her

And when I think the fighting has to end in a goodbye
I wanna prove me wrong
But I'm scared I'll prove me right, cause

I know that you can't walk across a bridge
That's already burned, so
What am I supposed to do?
I can't help that they chose
To breathe it in, but I don't wanna choke
On that secondhand smoke
Oh, no

Will I be better, find forever
Be the one to shake the habit
Break away from broken things
And rise above the ashes?

I know that you can't walk across a bridge
That's already burned, so
What am I supposed to do?
I can't help that they chose
To breathe it in, but I don't wanna choke
On that secondhand smoke
Oh
