Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm feelin' mighty lonesome
Haven't slept a wink
I walk the floor an' watch the door
In between I drink
Black coffee â?¦
Verse 2
Love's a hand-me-down brew
I'll never know a Sunday
In this weekday room.
Verse 3
Been talkin' to the shadows
One o'clock 'til four
An' Lord how slow the moments go
When all ya do is pour
Black coffee â?¦
Verse 4
Since the blues caught my eye
I'm hangin' out on Monday
My Sunday dreams to dry.
Verse 5
You know a man is born to love a woman
To work and slave to pay her debts
Just because he's only human
To drown his past regrets
In coffee and cigarettes.
Verse 6
I'm moonin' all the mornin'
Mournin' all the night
In between it's nicotine
Not much heart to fight
Black coffee ...
Verse 7
Feelin' low as the ground
I'm waitin' for my baby
To maybe come around.
Verse 8
Gonna drown my past regrets
In some coffee and a few cigarettes.
Verse 9
I'm moonin' all the mornin'
Mournin' all the night
In between it's nicotine
And not much heart to fight
Black coffee â?¦
Verse 10
Feeling low as the ground
It's driving me crazy!
Just waitin' for my baby
To maybe come around.
Please come around
Please come â?¦
Verse 11
Verse 12
