You're A Cold Cup of Coffee
2018
acrylic on canvas
11"x14"
You're a cold cup of coffee and a cigarette
You're a favorite line I won't forget
You're everything I'm asking for
You're everything my heart desires
I've been lonely
Since the day I was born
And I've got nothing to show
But these scars and broken bones
So take me high as you can
Take me high as you can
And I'll let you be my darlin'
If you let me be your man
You're a double shot of bourbon on the rocks
With just a splash of ginger
You're a methamphetamine midnight
That never ends
You're everything that's bad
That feels so goddamn good
And you'd know i'd change my ways
Baby if I could
So take me high as you can
Take me high as you can
And I'll let you be my darlin'
If you let me be your man
So take me high as you can
Take me high as you can
And I'll let you be my darlin'
If you let me be your man
You're a cold cup of coffee and a cigarette
You're a favorite line I won't forget
