She came from the middle of nowhere
A sleepy Pennsylvania town
Her mother held her guilty for so long
Till she finally put those burdens down

He spent his whole life on city fair
His window played the evening sun
And it's hard to believe for a strong man
But he surely was a lonely one

She took the morning shift downtown
It's strange to be his favorite place
And after every single customer was cruel enough
He was the only one to smile and say

Thank you for the coffee
A simple conversation
Thank you for the light shining in your eyes
It's taken such a long time to find someone to talk to
And I know it ain't much
But thank you for your time

And it's hard to find a kindred soul
And people are so unkind
And little things drive you crazy
Stay locked away in your mind

And so they say that, Frankie and Johnny were lovers
Just like Romeo and Juliet
But time never listens to fairy tales
So love had met the bitter end

He went back to his city life
And Pennsylvania called her name
But you keep on livin', trying to find
Someone with the time to say

Thank you for the coffee
A simple conversation
Thank you for the light shining in your eyes
It's taken such a long time to find someone to talk to
Girl I know it ain't much
But thank you for your time
