SONG MEANING

Alex has stated that Cigarettes In The Theatre is about the start of a relationship, it and Come Back Home, mark the start and end of a relationship respectively. He stated that he didn’t want it to be a clichéd conventional love song as “that’s what everyone else is writing about” and so is written in such a way to not seem like a love song. (Source)

SONG LYRICS

It starts in the theatre
A night of encounters
If I hadn’t been there
If not for a cigarette

And you could see it change
Look past the blinding light
Look past the blinding light

Just keep talking on
Tell me your favorite things
Tell me your favorite things

Difference in opinion was never an issue
Collect all your questions
‘Cause this time we’ve all night

And you could see it change
Look past the blinding light
Look past the blinding light

Just keep talking on
Tell me your favorite things
Tell me your favorite things

And you could see it change
Look past the blinding light
Look past the blinding light

Just keep talking on
Tell me your favorite things
Tell me your favorite things
