Lyrics

A Cup of Coffee (Words and music by Alan Gillis)

Intro verse
I sat down to write a love song
Looking for some fresh ideas
Trying to write the same old story
But in a new way

Verse 1
I took my problem to the boy next door
He just moved in last week
He offered me a coffee then said
"Write about me. Why not write about me?"

I told him I hardly knew his name
He said "it's time you did -
Let's have another coffee we can
Pretend we're on a date - our very first date"

Chorus
I swear the boy can read my mind
And I know he believes when I say
I've been looking for real love all my life
I found it today - I found it today.

Verse 2
I wanted inspiration
Looking for a spark of light
His very first line "would you like a coffee?"
Wrote the rest of my life - the rest of my life

Is this the way love happens
When you're looking the other way?
Creeping up behind when you least expect
The night to turn into day - steal your heart away

Repeat chorus

Bridge
Now he's every song I write, a new song every day.
Who'd believe a cup of coffee would turn out this way?

Instrumental break
Chorus

I found love today
