"Coffee Break" as written by and Tim Pattison Michael Harrison....
I'm two cups into my coffee break.
I'm sitting alone in the cafe from the way.
Reading all by myself
Turning my cell off just to breath
And everyone I know just keeps calling me.
And I just need a little time.

Cause I'm overcommiting myself.
I guess this is growing up
I'm sleeping so little these days.
I guess this is growing up
I'm feeling things are about to change
I'm guessing this is growin' up
Yeah I'm growing up.

And my mom hates my guts.
She has every reason to
From all the things I do.
And it breaks me just to know
That I have torn her apart so many times.
So many times

Cause I've overcommitted myself.
I guess this is growing
I'm sleeping so little these days.
I guess this is growing up
I'm feeling things are about to change
I'm guessing this is growin' up
Oh I'm guessing this is growing up

Now I'm done with my coffee break.
I turn on my phone.
Oh that I've grown up

    General CommentLyrically, along with Catastrophe, this is one of Caleb's (and JCook's) finest. I'm in love with the fact that it is Caleb that is singing the whole thing; it's that much more personal and he really has his heart into it.
    It makes me sad. Like, thinking about growing up and stuff.

    General CommentThey put it up on their myspace and I do love it! few suggestions:

    to me "Cause I've overcommitted myself." sounds like "Cause I've overcommit myself" and "Oh that I've grown up" sounds like "Now that I've grown up" these changes go along with the idea that the singer grows up during the song.

    General CommentSuch an amazing song.
    He "grows up" from the beginning to the end of the song. It's a great song when you're in the midst of the transition from childhood to adulthood.
