about

The song Coffee was written for a compilation of songs about coffee, and I thought I'd release it as a single, and re-record an older song I wrote about coffee as the b-side.

Track Name: Coffee
It’s been another sleepless night
Hanging out with my demons
Head pounding like a drum
And I don’t think I’ve eaten

I’m watching the sunrise
Through my basement window
Light filtering through
That old weeping willow

Soon I’ll go upstairs
And heat up some water
heat it til it’s hotter than I can stand

and drink some coffee
Cuz that’s what keeps me going
drink some coffee
So I can stay awake
I’ll drink some coffee
and I’ll let it keep flowing
til all my troubles fade away

It’s been another tiring day
but I don’t wanna sleep yet
cuz I know that my past
hasn’t stopped haunting my dreams yet

I need play some games
And keep my eyes open
I’ll keep on doing this
until my mind is broken

Soon I'll get home
and heat up some water
heat it til it’s hotter than I can stand

and drink some coffee
Cuz that’s what keeps me going
drink some coffee
So I can stay awake
I’ll drink some coffee
and I’ll let it keep flowing
til all my troubles fade away
Track Name: Nothing (Cold Coffee)
Drinking this cold coffee makes me think of you
It isn’t very good but you’re not a very good friend
You just ignore me when I call
Brush me off in public, you always pretend

That we’re nothing
and never will be
we’re nothing
and never were
your cold shoulder
always chills me
I’m shaken but you always stay inert

Thinking about you lately makes me feel so low
What happened that I didn’t notice that made you turn away?
I can’t really say my heart is broken
But it hurts me deeply when you act this way

Like we’re nothing
and never will be
we’re nothing
and never were
your cold shoulder
always chills me
I’m shaken but you always stay inert
