Coffee Time for Two

The cups are on the table As the coffee starts to brew Two flowers in the middle Now all I need is you . You called me up this morning Said you'd be stopping by My heart started racing I really don't know why . I guess I'm just excited To share this time with you I can think of nothing better Than gazing in your eyes of blue . It's been almost an hour now Since you were on the way Wish that you would call me So my mind won't start to stray . Our coffee time's so special It's where our love began So many words where spoken As our future we did plan . Now it's been two hours Still no knock upon my door I'm feeling a kind of emptiness As my "second cup" I pour . I sit and watch the clock hands As the hours pass me by Even the petals on the flowers Seem so sad they start to cry . My cup is now half empty Your cup is barren and it's cold I feel a familiar feeling There's a coldness starting to unfold . We've tried so many times Perhaps this time is our last Maybe thinking of our future Is just something in our past Though the petals have all fallen I'll keep the table set for two For our coffee time is "special" It's when I fell in love with you
