Coffee and Cigarettes

  • When I finally finished school
    It was the first thing that I did
    What every townie kid dreams of,
    I packed and started west
    A thousand dollars I had saved
    And my sister's two cassettes
    The Dead from Fillmore East
    And Otis Redding's Greatest Hits

    Coffee and Cigarettes
    As simple as it gets
    Of all the things I think I'll miss,
    There's staying up with you
    Coffee and Cigarettes
    Coffee and Cigarettes

    Then, I commit with some restraint
    To a boy I thought might care
    It didn't work but I found out soon
    And never dug roots there
    I been a lot of places since
    And nothing else compares
    To easy times and easy eyes
    To meet you in a stare

    Coffee and Cigarettes
    As simple as it gets
    Of all the things I think I'll miss,
    Coffee and Cigarettes
    Coffee and Cigarettes

    When I finally finished school
    It was the first thing that I did
    What every townie kid dreams of,
    I packed and started west
    A thousand dollars I had saved
    And my sister's two cassettes
    The Dead from Fillmore East
    And Otis Redding's Greatest Hits

    Coffee and Cigarettes
    As simple as it gets
    Of all the things I think I'll miss,
    Coffee and Cigarettes
    Coffee and Cigarettes
    Stayin' up with you
    Coffee and cigarettes
    Coffee and cigarettes
    Stayin' up with you
