Dances With Coffee Beans

Location

Let's go back. I mean way way back.
Just a face in the bleachers, a train on the track.
With your laces tied together I thought you would fall
But you kicked off your shoes and it made me feel small.
 
I know you don't try to hurt me on purpose
But how long will it take for you to learn this.
Why stay up so late, your sheets are at home
My world is on fire now, do you even know - what you're doing.
 

But it's alright
I'm on my knees tonight,
Let's end this fight,
Not goin' left now let's go right.
 

If you won't dance with me, then don't dance with anyone,
I am still here with my arms wide open
But this stubborn bulletproof heart still can't let it out
And it won't let you in but there is no doubt
That it loves you
And most things you do
 
 
She's so beautiful
Eyes like the ocean, laugh like the sunshine
and it's all too wonderful
But I've got a notion she's making moonshine
In your backyard
With your MasterCard
 
But as long as you're laughing, my soul will dance
Look on ahead I don't need another chance
She can wear white and I'll still wear a smile
I'll be alright if you just stay a while
 

But it's alright
I'm on my knees tonight,
Let's end this fight,
Not goin' left now let's go right
 

If you won't dance with me, then don't dance with anyone,
I am still here with my arms wide open
But this stubborn bulletproof heart still can't let it out
And it won't let you in but there is no doubt
That it loves you
And most things you do
 

But you're so far away
I'll sit alone in Starbucks anyway
thinking of you and how much you hate coffee
and how this cruel world seems to spin on without me
 

But it's alright
I'm on my knees tonight,
Let's end this fight,
Not goin' left now let's go right
 

 
If you won't dance with me, then don't dance with anyone,
I am still here with my arms wide open
But this stubborn bulletproof heart still can't let it out
And it won't let you in but there is no doubt
That it loves you
And most things you do
