Lyrics


Demon Coffee Love Song
(Polly Edwards)

Next time you have an evening free at home, take out your old demons, hug them and have a good heart-to-heart. At the very least, you might get a song out of it.

Ten o’clock on Friday night
There’s a full moon shining bright
It echoes off the pavement with its foggy light
Road’s deserted in this town
There is nothing going down
We’re all sitting home decked out in our best frowns

Polly

I wonder what to do with myself
I take a book down, then put it back on the shelf
There’s a knock outside my door
The monsters under my bed are back for more

I’m writing love songs for everything that’s wrong with me
Open the organ stops so everyone can see
I’m drinking coffee with my demons
Playing cribbage with my fear
And then I’ll brave a look in the mirror
And then I’ll brave a look in the mirror

The wind is at the pane again
It’s making love to the rain again
The thunder is raving mad and jealously complains
I know your ragged heart is torn
I heard you singing in the storm
So come on in and stay a while ‘til you get warm

We can wonder what to do with ourselves
We’ll air our souls out, then put them back on the shelf
Play a tune we’ve heard before
It starts with us kissing on the kitchen floor

We’ll write a love song for every flaw we see
Invite ‘em for coffee and adore them over tea
We can dance with all our demons
Tune the fiddle with our fear
And then we’ll brave a look in the mirror
And then we’ll brave a look in the mirror

We can wonder what to do with ourselves
We’ll air our souls out, then put them back on the shelf
Play a tune we’ve heard before
It starts with us kissing on the kitchen floor

We’ll write a love song for everything we see
Come and join us, the music’s always free
We’ll send our demons up to heaven
Say to hell with our fear
And then we’ll brave a look in the mirror
And then we’ll brave a look in the mirror
And then we’ll brave a look in the mirror
