A Cup of Coffee (Words and music by Alan Gillis)

Intro verse
I sat down to write a love song
Looking for some fresh ideas
Trying to write the same old story
But in a new way

Verse 1
I took my problem to the girl next door
She just moved in last week
She offered me a coffee then said
"Write about me. Why not write about me?"

I told her I hardly knew her name
She said "it's time you did -
Let's have another coffee we can
Pretend we're on a date - our very first date"

I swear the girl can read my mind
And I know she believes when I say
I've been looking for real love all my life
I found it today - I found it today.

I wanted inspiration
Looking for a spark of light
Her very first line "would you like a coffee?"
Wrote the rest of my life, the rest of my life

Is this the way love happens
When you're looking the other way?
Creeping up behind when you least expect
The night to turn into day, steal your heart away

Repeat chorus

Now she's every song I write, a new song every day
Who'd believe a cup of coffee would turn out this way?

Instrumental break

I found it today
I found love today
