Sharing Some Favorites: “Cup of Coffee” by Garbage

black

This song encapsulates that bitter side of the bittersweet when it comes to love.  The sweats.  The illogical, out-of-character, nonsensical behavior  driven by the addiction to the chemical reaction of being with the target of your affections.  A person, who no longer holds you with similar regard.

“You tell me you don’t love me over a cup of coffee
And I just have to look away
A million miles between us
Planets crashing to dust
I just let it fade away

I’m walking empty streets hoping we might meet
I see your car parked on the road
The light on at your window
I know for sure that you’re home
But I just have to pass on by

So no of course we can’t be friends
Not while I’m still this obsessed
I guess I always knew the score
This is how our story ends

I smoke your brand of cigarettes
And pray that you might give me a call
I lie around in bed all day just staring at the walls
Hanging round bars at night wishing I had never been born
And give myself to anyone who wants to take me home

So no of course we can’t be friends
Not while I still feel like this
I guess I always knew the score
This is where our story ends

You left behind some clothes
My belly somersaults when I pick them off the floor
My friends all say they’re worried
I’m looking far too skinny
I’ve stopped returning all their calls”
