coffee & cigarettes lyrics – jimmy eat world

“coffee & cigarettes”

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 c*ssettes:
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
