In the behind the scenes footage, Bannen reveals, “The track is really edgy and fun, and the imagery of that metaphor, like, ‘Baby you’re a cigarette straight to my head,’ or ‘Alcohol and nicotine, that’s you and me’ — I really loved the writing on it”…You know, a lot of habits are bad for us, and we say yes to them when we should say no. But we do them anyway!”.

Smoke When I Drink Lyrics

Haven’t had so much as a jonesing for ya
Bout back to where I was before ya
Started killing me one drag at a time
Took a shot comin here thought I might see ya
Figured I could live without that need ya feeling you got creepin up my spine

Alcohol and nicotine that’s you and me
I turn on a dime then I’m saying I,
Only smoke when I drink,
Only smoke when I drink,
Straight bumming keep it coming
Baby what do you think?
Feels good
Right now
And I’m too lit up to try and turn you down
All that holdback gone in a blink,
Keep telling myself I only smoke when I drink

You know me boy I’d be lying
To say that I don’t need a desert island quarantine to wean me off of you
Only thing that works is staying sober
And that ships sailed a couple times over
Now you’re walking over right on cue
Baby you’re a cigarette straight to my head, I’m high as a kite while I’m saying I,

Only smoke when I drink
Only smoke when I drink
Straight bumming keep it coming
Baby what do you think
Feels good
Right now
And I’m too lit up to try and turn you down
All that holdback gone in a blink,
Keep telling myself I only smoke when I drink

(hey!)

Tomorrow I’ll be waking up wondering what I was thinking last night but tonight I’m saying I,

Only smoke when I drink
Only smoke when I drink
Straight bumming keep it coming
Baby what do you think?
Feels good
Right now
And I’m too lit up to try and turn you down
All that holdback gone in a blink
Keep telling myself I only smoke when I drink
