Two Beds And A Coffee Machine

Album: Affirmation (1999)
  • And she takes another step
    Slowly she opens the door
    Check that he is sleeping
    Pick up all the broken glass
    And furniture on the floor
    Been up half the night screaming
    Now it's time to get away
    Pack up the kids in the car
    Another bruise to try and hide
    Another alibi to write
    Another lonely highway
    In the black of night

    Another ditch in the road
    You keep moving
    Another stop sign
    You keep moving on
    And the years go by so fast
    Wonder how I ever made it through

    And there are children to think of
    Baby's asleep in the back seat
    Wonder how they'll ever make it
    Through this living nightmare
    But the mind is an amazing thing
    Full of candy dreams and new toys
    And another cheap hotel
    Two beds and a coffee machine
    But there are groceries to buy
    And she knows she'll have to go home

    Another ditch in the road
    You keep moving
    Another stop sign
    You keep moving on
    And the years go by so fast
    Wonder how I ever made it through

    Another bruise to try and hide
    You keep moving
    Another stop sign
    You keep moving on
    And the years go by so fast
    Silent fortress built to last
    Wonder how I ever made it Writer/s: DANIEL JONES, DARREN HAYES, DARREN STANLEY HAYES

  • 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.
