I drink good coffee every morning
It comes from a place that's far away
And when I'm done, I feel like talking
Without you here, there is less to say

But I don't want you thinking I'm unhappy
What is closer to the truth
That if I lived till I was hundred and two
I just don't think, I'll ever get over you

I'm no longer moved to drink strong whiskey
'Cause it always leads me to that room
Another day spent drunk and weeping
It's not my idea of a pleasant afternoon

But I can now say, I'm no longer lonely
'Cause I shook the hand of time and I knew
That if I lived till I could no longer climb my stairs
I just don't think, I'll ever get over you

Your face it dances and it haunts me
Your laughter's still ringing in my ears
I still find pieces of your presence here
Even after all these years

But I don't want you thinking, I don't get asked to dinner
'Cause I'm here to say that I sometimes do
Even though I may soon feel the touch of love
I just don't think, I'll ever get over you

And if I lived till I was hundred and two
I just don't think, I'll ever get over you
