Cup of Joe, java
Have a cup of tea
He sits across from me, luminously
Cupid's crossed eyes got nothing on me, please
I woke up pretty early, girly, curly, blonde hair
Oh, I know something has to happen
But it's so cold, we pretend we're smoking
This briskness is ridiculous
I know, I know
As when I want to walk away, I won't
Don't dare take my eyes off of your lips
Now it's time to go home
Don't you know I don't want to go
I need to tell you, but I choke, no joke
Oh, I know crush's definition
But it's so cold & I can't keep from grinning
This briskness is ridiculous
I know, I know

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs ever. It makes me appreciate life despite bad circumstances.

    If you ever get your hands on a copy of the 'Unicorns, Demos, B-Sides, and Rainbows' album (2005). This has a very nice acoustic version, that I also liked very much. The 'Unicorns, Demos, B-Sides, and Rainbows' album also has acoustic/demo versions of other great Zolof songs like 'There's That One Person You'll Never Get Over No Matter How Long It's Been'.

    General CommentI think it's about people (or your crush) being cold and mean.
