Coffee Shop

Album: One Hot Minute (1995)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the fifth and final single from the band's sixth studio album. The song is meant to be descriptive of a person who is just trying to find somebody to love, and suggests to someone else that they meet at a coffee shop and then try to have sex sometime afterwards. It's actually one of the more upbeat songs on an album of more dark and grim material and is more reflective of the band's earlier material than most of the album. >>
