Smoke Ring

There is a brand upon my heart
Burned by others souls
The smoke ring burns its brand
Never letting me forget

Less is more in my future
your boots walked in standing firm
Boot scoot and shuffle my thoughts
Bringing danger into my heart

I refuse to linger on thoughts of you
Never wanting to tune another’s rues
your approach came in as thunder
Your boots upon my heart will plunder

There is a brand upon my heart
Burned by others souls
A smoke ring burns its brand
Never letting me forget

Remove those boots from my view
Gentler touch should be used
lean in with a subtle grin
Pass the beer let us begin

There is a brand upon my heart
Burned by others souls
A smoke ring burns its brand
Never letting me forget

Shower me with your silken touch
Slowly the brand will be washed
leaving a ghost of a ring
my heart will never again sing

There is a brand upon my heart
Burned by others souls
A smoke ring burns its brand
Never letting me forget

Time will tell if this is true
Or another dog day wasted
lingering kisses tasted
Brand me with passion

There is a brand upon my heart
Burned by others souls
A smoke ring burns its brand
Never letting me forget
Come on now
Let’s push into the plow
righting the wrong
Help me sing another song

Gather together halting my fear
never bring me another tear
Rope me in with your grin
Taste everlasting treasure

There is a brand upon my heart
Burned by others souls
A smoke ring burns its brand
Never letting me forget
