Scarlet Road – Coffee And Tea lyrics

I need some coffee
To wake me up in the morning
This girl beside me is
Not enough to kick me in the head
I need some tea
Some good old-fashioned caffeine
Oh, to pick me up
To give me some self esteem, ok

You are nothing in the morning
She is something, coffee and tea

So listen when I tell you this
This girl beside me
Is nothing but a big old mess
And I must sweep her
Up before the coffee police arrive
And arrest me for coming
Down off of my high, ok

You are nothing in the morning
She is something, coffee and tea

Oh, and I feel as though
Something's wrong
Oh, my blood is just pumping wrong
Oh, and I feel it so deep inside, oh...

You are nothing in the morning
But she is something, coffee and tea

Take the highway down
To where you once belonged
You're not wanted here this dawn
Take the highway down
Cuz you're already gone
I don't want you on my lawn
