Song Description

After a session of love making, the singer's lover goes on to his usual work day. The singer breathes in the fragrances of afterglow and hope it lasts long. She puts on his flannel shirt, as it also smells like him. She goes about her day, but he never comes home. She is tormented by all the fragrances and odors that she associates with him, from a scented candle to leather car seats, etc. She has th' vapors.

Story Behind the Song

Lyrics are supposed to evoke images and I used the sense of smell to help the listener visualize this story. Fragrances and odors often trigger memories of that special person.

Lyrics

Th' Vapors
(Intro)
I. Caught a whiff on my skin, after he gone.
Lovin' lingers on me. I hope it lasts long.
Th' bottle's empty, but th' essence is strong.
Vapors all over me. Vapors all over me. I hope it lasts long.
(Turnaround)
II. His flannel shirt. I wore it yesterday.
Put it back on th' hook. Like he used to say.
Only wore it once. Save it for wash day.
Didn't be right back. Didn't be right back. Like he used to say.
(Chorus)
I got th' vapors, remindin' me.
Drivin' me crazy! Where is he?
A scented candle. It's th' one he bought.
For th' bedroom. An' we never fought.
Smokey back room, that night at th' bar.
Leather car seats, where we went so far.
Freshly mowed grass, watchin' his tight ass.
Grillin' steaks out. When will it pass?
I got th' vapors. Ooo. I got th' vapors. Ooo.
(Turnaround)
III. Th' flowers wilted, so I took 'em out th' vase.
I look out th' door, as I set your place.
I cooked your favorite, and I say grace.
When will I forget? When will I forget? As I set your place.
(Chorus)
I got th' vapors, remindin' me.
Drivin' me crazy! Where is he?
A scented candle. It's th' one he bought.
For th' bedroom. An' we never fought.
Smokey back room, that night at th' bar.
Leather car seats, where we went so far.
Freshly mowed grass, watchin' his tight ass.
Grillin' steaks out. When will it pass?
I got th'vapors. Ooo. I got th' vapors. Ooo.
(Turnaround) I got th' vapors.
