Two Beds And A Coffee Machine

Album: Affirmation (1999)
  • This song is about a woman who is trapped in an abusive relationship. To protect herself and the kids, she often runs away and spends the night at cheap hotels with two beds and a coffee machine. She knows there will be bills, that she can't survive on her own and eventually she will have to go back home. >>

  • Ioana from Bucharest, RomaniaThe song is about Darren's childhood. The woman is his mother, and he's the baby. I find it extraordinary sincere and feel like crying everytime I listen to it.
