"Five Cups Of Coffee" lyrics - THE JAYHAWKS

"Five Cups Of Coffee"

When I left here this morning
Just like before
You say nothing changes
Passing time around here
Stole a long string of pearls
And I pawned downtown
Gonna buy me some good fun
Back where no one can see

And the long black dream is over
As the snow falls on and on
And it takes five cups of coffee
To calm down before I sleep

Let the sky soak on my clothes
Way back in the alley
All of the red beads
Mixed up in her pew
Take the chance that I left you
Knowing where you might need me
So easy to believe
In someone I'd never see

[Chorus 2x]
