"Coffee" as written by and Joseph/mcqueen Johnson....
There's plenty of time left tonight
I promised I'd have you home before daylight
We do the best we can in a small town
Act like big city kids when the sun goes down

If it's not too late for coffee
I'll be at your place in ten
We'll hit that all night diner
And then we'll see

There's so many things I have to say
I'll stay up all night to hear about your day
We do the best we can in a small town
Act like kids in love when the sun goes down

If it's not too late for coffee
I'll be at your place in ten
We'll hit that all night diner
And then we'll see

There's a love that transcends
All that we've known of ourselves
And I'll wait for it to come
I'll wait for it to come
Well it's got to be strong to touch my heart
Through its shell
And I'll wait for it to come
I'll wait for it to come

If it's not too late for coffee
I'll be at your place in ten
We'll hit that all night diner
And then we'll see

There's a love that transcends
All that we've known of ourselves
And I'll wait for it to come
I'll wait for it to come
Well it's got to be strong to touch my heart
Through its shell
And I'll wait for it to come
I'll wait for it to come down

    General CommentI saw these guys here in Australia when they were supporting Anberlin, and honestly i nearly fell asleep they were so boring, they need to support someone a lot softer like bright eyes or the spill canvas or something along those lines. I am not saying they are a bad band they are good for their genre but i just cant get into them. they seem to be the music you put on so you can sleep cause thats all they seem to do for me, make me yawn. Oh well Anberlin went off, so they made up for the boringness of Copeland. I suppose any band after Angelas Dish will have expectations to look up to. Any way this is the only song i can stand by them so thats why i am typing on their page. No criticism intended. see you all..
    You sexy piece of MEAT!

    General CommentOne of my favorite of theirs.
    My sister went to see them a few months back, I couldn't go - but she got me a shirt. Which is half the reason I'm cool.

    General CommentI love Copeland's lyrics. Aaron doesn't try to be fancy and write things that no one can understand. He writes what he feels, and it's so simple yet so deep and meaningful.

    General Commentwowowow. i really can relate to this song a lot. and i think when you can relate to a song, you like it more. "We do the best we can in a small town" <-- i'm in a small townnn! and i think its so true. people here try so hard to act ''cool'' or however that goes..its depressing. "I'll stay up all night to hear about your day'' <-- i love that line too. its so sweet. three cheers for cople to the land!

    General Comment"we do the best we can in a small town, act like big city kids when the sun goes down"

    reminds me of the suburban attitude, the comfortable stability. pretending to rock the weekends, et cetera. reminds me of lazy weekends then driving in our luxury cars downtown after stopping at another starbucks. something about it speaks volumes on love -- not just romantic love, but something more than that.
