And so the story starts
With a boy who catches the train
Two stations down comes a girl
He made friends with the other day
And the two realize
They live on the same train line
At the end of the service
Oh the boy he asks her "Can I buy you a coffee?"

This coffee becomes a ritual
The two share every day
And soon they talk for hours
They even wait for the next train
And they start to finish sentences
And they catch each other's eyes
An open book to one another
Oh they're partners in crime

A boy and girl alike
The world beneath their feet
A part of one and other
They share each other's dream
And no matter happens
There is always space for coffee

But now the story darkens
The partners have split up
No longer is their laughter but tears
And he holds on too
While she wishes it wasn't true

One morning on the train
He sees her from a distance
He rushes out the door
And yells at her from behind
"Can we just sort this out? - you're the only thing on my mind
Can I just take you out?
Even if it's one last time?
Can I buy you a coffee again....?"
