Coffee and Cigarettes Lyrics

by Jimmy Eat World

When I finally finished school
It was the first thing that I did
What every townie kid dreams of,
I packed and started west
A thousand dollars I had saved
And my sister's two cassettes:
The Dead from Fillmore East
And Otis Redding's Greatest Hits

Coffee and Cigarettes
As simple as it gets
Of all the things I think I'll miss,
There's staying up with you
Coffee and Cigarettes
Coffee and Cigarettes

Then, I commit with some restraint
To a boy I thought might care
It didn't work but I found out soon
And never dug roots there
Been a lot of places since
But nothing else compares
To easy times and easy eyes
To meet you in a stare

Coffee and Cigarettes
As simple as it gets
Of all the things I think I'll miss,
Coffee and Cigarettes
Coffee and Cigarettes
