COFFEE SHOP SCENE

Chance meeting of friends in a coffee shop world that’s been groomed by years gone by
And I try to distinguish the joy in your smile from the vague intent in your eye

So let’s play that game where we talk about all the friends we have in common
And I’ll sip my drink as I watch your eyes dart around the room for topics

Sincerity lasts only so long it seems, Conversation’s a delicate art
And I’ve never been one to exchange pleasantries if it doesn’t come from the heart

Yet we play that game where we talk about all the friends we have in common
And I sip my drink as I watch your eyes dart around the room for topics

Whatever we had has been lost somewhere between then and now
Though it’s all hard to swallow I can’t help but think
“Thanks for then, it’s a shame about now”

A parting of friends from a coffee shop scene that’s been saddened a bit by our sighs
And we both dismiss memories of what used to be, Wish you well as I wish you goodbye

So we’ve played our game of remember when
All that life we had in common
Though the years were sweet, it’s hard not to think
“Thanks for then, it’s a shame about now.”
I loved you then and that’s not different now
But that was then, it’s a shame about now
