Coffee Girl

This song is by The Tragically Hip and appears on the album We Are the Same (2009).

It's hard to leave your bed
The cool and hard summer sheets
Hangover hanging on by the fangs
Walk to work on wild feet
Get to the back door
Look around and turn the key
Turn on all the lights
Take down the chairs and make things neat

Hey, there, Coffee Girl
Beautiful and disaffected
It was perfect till
He came along and wrecked it

Your favourite mixed tape
You popped it into the deck
Don't care it's out of date
Old Cat Power and classic Beck
Beware Purveyors of Cool
With their compacts of one
Taking cannons to fools
When all you need's a BB gun

Hey there, Coffee Girl
Beautiful and disaffected
It was perfect till
He came along and wrecked it

One night he'll make you choose
I am sorry but he will
The hardscape or your shoes
When the moon's behind the hill

Hey there, Coffee Girl
Beautiful and disaffected
It was perfect till
He came along and wrecked it

Hey there, Coffee Girl
Hey there, Coffee Girl
Hey there, Coffee Girl
Hey there, Coffee Girl
