Another Cup Of Coffee

The second single from "Beggar on a Beach of Gold". Without doubt, it's one of the bands signature tunes, employing an emotive lyric and a hooking melody. It's a song which has become a staple for numerous "Best of acoustic Rock" compilations - and deservedly so.

Lyrics

And she pours herself another cup of coffee
As she contemplates the stain across the wall
And its in between the cleaning and the washing
That's when looking
The back's hardest part of all

And she always did her best to try and please him
While he always did his best to make her cry
And she got down on her knees to stop him leaving
But he always knew one day he'd say goodbye

Where are your friends
Where are your children
Is this your house
Is this your home
Does nothing ever last forever
Does everybody sleep alone

And he tears the business tags from his old suitcase
As he packs away the pieces of his life
They all love him bat they always try to change him
That's what happens when a girl becomes a wife

And she pours herself another cup of coffee
As the pictures leave a clean space on the wall
and it's in between the leaving and the loving
That's when looking back's
The hardest part of all

Where are your friends
Where are your children
Is this your house
Is this your home
Does nothing ever last forever
Does everybody sleep alone

Don't look back
Don't give up
Pour yourself another cup
