Coffee & Cold Showers

from by The Usual Things

lyrics

She doesn’t wanna talk,
She’s dead asleep.
She’s had about three or four hours on me.

But I stumble through the dark doorway
The silence pours over everything.

Until she says my name.
I can tell she’s pissed again.
And I’m always to blame.

I’ll quit drinking when you call off your dogs
And you’ll quit asking how I spend my nights.
So pour out the black coffee
While you clear your head

And I’ll run the cold shower
While you wait in bed.

She waited up
Practiced her speech.
She takes one look at you and forgets every word.

She stumbles through
And some things she’d say
Shatter like a glass upon the floor.

Like how she says my name.
I can tell she’s pissed again.
And I’m always to blame.

I’ll quit drinking when you call off your dogs
And you’ll quit asking how I spent my night.
So pour out the black coffee
While you clear your head.

And I’ll run the cold shower,
While you wait in bed.

Yeah we can work it out.
Yeah we can work it out.
We can work it out.

I’ll quit drinking when you call off your dogs
And you’ll quit asking how I spent my night.
So pour out the black coffee
While you clear your head.

And I’ll run the cold shower,
While you wait.

We can work it out.
We can work it out.
