Song: “Coffee and Cream”

“Coffee and Cream”

Behind the Song

I don’t have too much to say about this song.

There’s no subtext, no metaphors.

It’s a simple song about a simple pleasure: coffee mixed with cream.

Watching it, smelling it, savoring it.

Sweet like rich cream

Lyrics

Through a crack in the curtains
the sunlight wakes me up
I shuffle to the kitchen
and brew myself a cup

I need some background music
a rhythm for my ride
Coffee, mixed with cream,
will do just fine

Coffee and cream,
coffee and cream,
coffee and cream
Oh I love my coffee and cream,
coffee and cream

Staring at screens
my battery's nearly drained
I think it's time for a break
clear the cobwebs from my brain

Oh I love to watch the cream rise
those blossoming clouds
then stir it all together
into a mellow, mocha brown

Coffee and cream,
coffee and cream,
coffee and cream
Oh I love my coffee and cream,
coffee and cream

Late afternoon, I crave something sweet
Some honeyed toast for a light repast
Brew my last cup, pour in that ivory silk
Share it with a friend to make it last

Coffee and cream,
coffee and cream,
coffee and cream
Oh I love my coffee and cream,
coffee and cream
