coffee

yeah, I’m just a little bit sleepy
when I roll out of bed
But I still start thinking about things
I can’t get outa my head
Gonna fix myself some coffee, clear my brain

Oh, they’re just a mess of little things
they’re nothing very big
memories of how mornings used to be
before I had days like this

As I listen to the grinding beans
Remembering you in those blue jeans
Praying with each spoonful like a rosary
One for you and each of the kids
Put in the water, close the lid
Push the button, start the brew
And say one more thank God for you.

yeah, I can’t help but wonder just a bit
how you are feeling now
if you’re even remembering this
if you forgot, then how?
when you’re fixing yourself coffee, to clear your brain

As I listen to the grinding beans
Remembering you in those blue jeans
Praying with each spoonful like a rosary
One for you and each of the kids
Put in the water, close the lid
Push the button, start the brew
And say one more thank God for you.
